Welcome to the beautiful, Grade I Listed, 928 year old, Norman (and Victorian)
Tutbury Priory Church – dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary
. . . in Tutbury, Staffordshire, not far from Burton-on-Trent, Derby and Uttoxeter and only 16 miles from Lichfield Cathedral.
Famous for the unique West Door with the only known Alabaster Arch (circa 1160) in the country. Building started 14 years after the Norman Conquest and the Priory was completed in the mid 12th century.
The Dissolution of the Monasteries saw a large part of the Priory destroyed or removed, leaving only a large Parish Church.
The explosion of church building in the Victorian era saw major additions to the Church overseen by the one of the most eminent church architects of the Victorian age, GE Street.
Further major additions occurred in the first half of the 20th Century, many as a result of the Remembrance of WWI.
Everyone is welcome – our church is open for people of all faiths and none – come and enjoy the peace and space of this beautiful building.
