St Mary's Church is a parish church and was probably once the chapel of Holystone Priory. It was built in the early 12th century and largely rebuilt between 1848 and 1849. In the medieval period the church was much larger and the present nave was the medieval church's chancel. St Mary's Church is a Grade II Listed Building, protected by law.
