St. Mary de Crypt Church (Gloucester)

St. Mary de Crypt is one of the historic churches in the ancient cathedral city of Gloucester.

It was founded about 1100 in the Norman period, and has a number of interesting mediaeval wall paintings. Norman work survives in the arches of the crypt.

Robert Raikes, the founder of the Sunday School movement, who was born in Gloucester, was buried at St. Mary's in 1811.

And it was here that another Gloucester man, George Whitfield, the 18th century Methodist preacher who was involved with the Countess of Huntingdon's Connection, gave his first sermon.
