A walk inside St Mary Magdalene represents a tour of High Victorian decoration at its very best. There is a subtle mix of pink and white stone in the nave, much of it Butterfield’s original design, with a red brick and white string course. The nave was recently restored during a refurbishment by the parishioners.

Minton tiles cover much of the flooring and the Lady chapel was a sympathetic addition to the church at a later date.

The Organ was originally built by Messrs. Foster and Andrew at the church's construction in 1883. It was extensively rebuilt in 1977.




Minton Tiles

Minton tiles cover much of the church flooring. These tiles are a fascinating feature of the chancel and sanctuary of the church. Some of them depict strange animals and birds. They are often seen in Butterfield churches.
