St. Mary's Church, Tickhill

OS Grid reference- SK 592 931

St. Mary's Church in the small South Yorkshire town of Tickhill is a Grade I listed building which dates from the early twelfth century. The present building is predominantly of Perpendicular style with glimpses of earlier Norman, Early English and Decorated styles.

The majority of the stained glass in the building is of late 19th century date, however, the South Aisle windows each retain restored medieval glass. The window above the Chancel Arch is an interesting and unusual feature.

In the north west corner of the church is the much battered tomb of Sir Thomas Fitzwilliam (died 1478) and his wife Lucy Neville. Thomas is thought to have fought for King Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. His wife Lucy was the daughter of John Neville, Marquis Montagu and was a cousin of Kings Edward IV and Richard III. She married as her second husband Sir Anthony Browne.
