St. Mary's Church, Salisbury

St. Mary's Church is an old medieval church located at Wilton Market Place. The church was active for more than 600 years until a new parish church was built and St. Mary's was partially torn down. Today only the chancel and a few arches remain. The surviving chancel has a beautiful 18th-century Georgian ceiling. Plaques scattered around the church teach about the history of Wilton. St. Mary's Church was dedicated as a garden of peace in 1938 and is under the protection of the Church Conservation Trust.
