St Mary's Church, Studley Royal is the masterpiece work of the architect William Burges, who was one of the most original and imaginative Victorian architects of the 19th century. St Mary's Church, Studley Royal was built by the Marchioness of Ripon between 1871 and 1878. Much of the architectural style is medieval and richly and ornately decorated throughout from the stained glass windows to the ceiling! St Mary's Church, Studley Royal is one of the finest examples of High Victorian Gothic Revival architecture in England and is owned by English Heritage and managed by the National Trust.

I have only added a few brief notes and left the pictures to inspire you to visit St Mary's Church, Studley Royal, a quite remarkable piece of church architecture.
