Beautiful church and tower and was built in the 19th century, however there has been history of churches on this site dating back to at least the 12th century. Really worth visiting this church.

There has been a church on the site of St Mary's since the 1100s. The current building dates from the 1880s and is a local landmark. It's a beautiful, peaceful place if you want to escape the crowds in the centre of Portsmouth. St Mary's...More
