St. Mary the Virgin, Stapleford Tawney

The chancel of this church is the oldest part of the building, dating to around 1220. Other parts were added as the years went by, including the vestry in 1862, when a thorough restoration was also done.

Sir Charles Cunliffe Smith commissioned the mosaic reredos of The Last Supper from Salviati in 1883.
