Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Down St. Mary

This Medieval church was rebuilt 1878-80 by J.D. Gould and its chancel was enriched by G.E. Street.

The chancel contains reredos in alabaster decorated with Salviati mosaics from 1866. The central, square panel contains geometric and floral motifs, while the two quatrefoil side panels depict carved angels on a blue mosaic background.

A mosaic of Pelican in Her Piety under the Holy Grail is found on the south wall.
