St Mary's Church, Rosliston

The Church of St Mary the Virgin was largely rebuilt and extended in 1819 but the C14 tower with its rebuilt broach spire still remains. The nave is a wide, aisleless structure with three large, two-light Gothic windows in each of its side walls, the middle one on the south wall having its lower half replaced by a porch.

The shallow sanctuary, only slightly less wide than the nave, has the uniquely attractive feature of a triple chancel arch - a transverse arcade in which the central arch is just marginally larger than the two side ones. Save for the later Victorian furnishings the interior is quite unaltered and well worth a visit.
