About

This is a rare example of Robert Adam's ecclesiastical work. Originally it was a parish church, St. Mary the Virgin, that had been built in the 18th century in the Georgian style. Sadly the two towers are now all that remain. Wealthy politician Richard Rigby had grandiose plans to transform Mistley into a spa town. However, his plans were never brought to fruition as money ran out.
The key is available from Mistley quay workshops.
