St Marys was built in around 1150 and is the second smallest church in the country. Its only about 10 metres by 5.5 metres.
St Mary’s is a beautiful, old church set in fields in the middle of the Leicestershire countryside. It dates to medieval times and is one of the smallest churches in the country still having regular worship. Recently a paschal candle was placed in St Mary’s as a tribute to its sister church St James’ Snibston, which was closed in 2007 The candle stand was carved from the former altar of St James’ Church. Also inside is a list of all the priests who have served what was then the parish of Snibston, dating back to the times of the Normans. Over the years it has changed, being repaired and altered.
You do not need to go into the church grounds.
