The present St. Mary's Church was consecrated on the 12th October 1871. It replaced the former church which was largely demolished but for the tower which has an iconic presence nearby. The church and its immediate surroundings have a wealth of heritage going back many centuries, the oldest is the motte and bailey to the north of the present church.
St Mary's became part of the Mirfield Team Parish in 2007 joining with St John's in Upper Hopton and St Paul's in Eastthorpe. Adjacent to the church site is the Team Parish Office which is part of the community centre site. Both the church and the community centre host a wide variety of events which all play a part in the mission and outreach of the team parish. Everyone is given a warm welcome at St Mary's not least by the present clergy, headed by the Rev'd. Hugh Baker who is the Priest in Charge.
The Mirfield Parish Magazine website has a host of detailed information about the history and development of St Mary's.
