St. Mary`s Church (Marlborough)

St. Mary`s Church is the parish church of Marlborough in Wiltshire.

It is situated by the Village Green, and reached from the wide High Street by a covered passageway named Patten Alley, where pattens, wodden overshoes, could be left before entering the church.

The church was originally built in the Norman period, but all that remains is the excellent West doorway, dating from around 1150, and a pillar.

The rest of the church dates back to the 15th century, but was gutted during the disastrous fire in the town in 1653. Oliver Cromwell raised funds for its restoration as a gesture of friendship as Marlborough had supported Parliament in the Civil War.
