St Mary's, Sturminster Marshall

St Mary's church dates back to the 13th-century.  Sturminster means 'large church on the river Stour'.

The word 'Marshall' was added when the village was gifted to William Marshall, Prince Regent of England and a principal signatory of the Magna Carta, an important document which declared that nobody is above the law, not even the King.

 

Please do come and visit our beautiful church, it is open every day.  On Saturday and Sunday afternoons between Easter and the end of September you can sample some Dorset cream teas and other goodies in the Old School across the road (thereby helping local charities).  And of course you will find a warm welcome in the Red Lion pub, opposite the church, all year round!
