Hull – Saint Mary Lowgate

Hull - Saint Mary Lowgate

The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Lowgate, Hull

This lovely church in the Old Town is in an unusual position, hard onto the street at the west end – the result of street widening in the 19thC It is basically a good mediaeval building, listed grade II*, extended and restored by G G Scott, who also added an outer south aisle in the 1870s. The tower straddles the pavement of the east side of Lowgate and the footpath passes beneath, immediately past the west doors. Inside it is rich with Victorian and early 20thC fittings, including work by Temple Moore.

Having concentrated on the exterior fabric for the last 20 years, the PCC is now turning their attention to the interior which is much in need of help.
