his grand church in Tetbury is named St. Mary the Virgin; we have seen it called St. Mary Magdalen or just St. Mary on other websites. When we visited the church there were quite a few visitors so it was difficult to photograph some areas without disturbing people; after being there a while a service was due to start so we needed to leave before we had finished taking all the photographs we would have liked to have taken. Our photographs of the outside are particularly lacking as we only have two - one which has the spire missing, and the other is so far away no detail can be seen. We shall no doubt return to Tetbury to take more photographs.
The church is Grade I listed - listing details can be seen at the Historic England

. This website has photographs and lots of information about the church.
A lot of the numerous memorials in the church are high up on walls which make them difficult to photograph without a ladder or a good zoom lens. Quite a few inscriptions on our photographs of these memorials are difficult to read, or even unreadable; some are in the ambulatories and have to be photographed from the side as the corridor is narrow, but you can see transcriptions of all the memorials at: GlosGenMIs
The inside of the church has a plain beauty, which sounds contradictory. Despite having numerous stained glass windows, which usually darken an area, light floods in through the many clearer windows. The colour of the stone is pleasing to the eye, and despite the numerous and sometimes elaborate decorations it still feels spacious. The ambiance is dignified and welcoming.
