St Mary the Virgin Church

St Mary's was built in 1867 beside Westcott village green. It was designed by the famous Victorian architect G.E. Street, who later designed the Law Courts in the Strand.

Although the exterior is of stone, the interior is of rose coloured brick. The furnishings in this Grade 2* listed church were also designed by Street. Sir Nicholas Pevsner, the eminent church historian, described Street's church as follows: 'Easily his best work in the county. Very austere.'

The present church, along with Westcott CE School next door, was given to Westcott by the last Duke of Buckingham and Chandos.

Please visit the parish website for further information about the weekly services and how to arrange a wedding, christening or funeral.


Welcome to the Parish of Waddesdon, Westcott, Upper Winchendon and Fleet Marston, Buckinghamshire. Therein lies the story of three small and one large village churches joining together to encourage and support each other as we seek to serve our respective communities.

We, a group of people of all ages and backgrounds, recognise we are on a shared journey to wholeness as we discover God’s love and care for us. We recognise the importance of every individual and value the contribution each one makes to our life together. We rejoice to see toddlers and octogenarians and all ages in between worshipping, eating and crafting together. We are not a church that believes it has in some way arrived at a destination. We relate to the biblical model of “Pilgrims on a journey”. We invite you to come and see if you would like to join us on that journey. Be assured of a warm welcome.

Each of the churches have their own unique character and section on the website. Our parish is part of a larger group of churches known as The Schorne Team. We all get together to worship four times a year and celebrate that we are also part of a much bigger picture. Could you be part of that picture?
