In and out of St Mary's in the Marketplace
Stockport Parish Church is known as St Mary's in the Marketplace. It is a Grade I listed building.
Inside it has stained glass by several different makers, including the East window by O'Connor, 1849.
Outside it has a gateway built of ashlar stone by Lewis Wyatt in the shape of an elaborate Gothic screen forming three pointed archways with crocketed finials above the centre arch. The gateway is Grade II* listed.
The exit from the church leads directly into the Market Hall.
