St Mary's Church is a redundant Anglican church in the hamlet of Lambourn Woodlands in the English county of Berkshire. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building, and is under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. The church stands on the south side of the B4000 road, some 2 miles (3 km) south of Lambourn.

History

The church was built in 1852 and designed by the architect Thomas Talbot Bury, a pupil of Augustus Charles Pugin, in Gothic Revival style. It was declared redundant on 1 June 1990, and was vested in the Churches Conservation Trust on 24 July 1991.

Architecture

St Mary's is constructed in flint with stone dressings, and has slate roofs. Its plan is simple, consisting of a three-bay nave, a north aisle and a chancel. To the north of the west end is an octagonal spire. There are three two-light windows in Decorated style, and a three-light east window.

Inside the church is a three-bay arcade carried on octagonal piers. The chancel contains a sedilia and a piscina. The reredos was carved by John Bacon, whose son was the first parish priest.
