St Marys Church Nantwich: In the market town of Nantwich, you will find the 14th century St Marys Church, with its wonderful octagonal tower. The vaulted stone chancel roof has magnificent decorative ribs carved in the lierne style, designed to draw the eye upwards to the ceiling and presumably onwards to heaven. It is set off by the stained glass windows and magnificent carved wooden stalls, complete with intricately carved misericords beneath the seats to ease the long services. Unusual in its construction is a monument in the south transept it is early 17th century, and commemorates a local mayor. Made from alabaster and limestone, it has none of the colour of typical designs of the time, but its simplicity is its appeal.
