St Mary and St Giles Church

We are proud to be working with St Mary and St Giles Church in Stony Stratford.

This building is part of the rich history of the Christian Church as it has sought to worship and bear witness to its Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This Parish Church is part of the rich tapestry of Stony Stratford.

The Roman Watling Street, around which the town of Stony Stratford developed, was the boundary between the ancient manors of Calverton and Wolverton. To care for the spiritual needs of travellers along this great highway, both manors provided chapels of ease in Stony Stratford, thus becoming the first town in Buckinghamshire to have two churches.

The churches were dedicated to St Giles (Calverton) and St Mary Magdalene (Wolverton), respectively, and fairs were held in the town on the festivals of these saints.
