One of England's finest small churches, it is richly packed with monuments to the St. John family including the Golden Cavalier, a full-size effigy of Edward St John emerging from his tent in full battledress. Simon Jenkins wrote in praise of St Mary’s in 2004: “Were the South Chapel to be removed lock, stock and barrel to the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, it would cause a sensation.”
Visitors to Lydiard House can sign out a key to visit St Mary's Church during house opening hours of Tuesday to Sunday 11am to 5pm (Winter closing at 4pm) when the church is not in use for services.
