Churches (67) : St Dionysius, Market Harborough

The church of St Dionysius in the centre of the market town of Market Harborough dates from the late 13th century where it was originally a Chapel of St Mary in Arden. However much of the current church dates from the following two centuries. The tower is 14th century and is made from grey ashlar. The tower was damaged in a storm in 1735, the replacement spire being a little bit shorter!

The rest of the church is made from coursed sandstone rubble. The church was restored in the 19th century with parts of the roof replaced.
