St Mary's Church, Scarborough


St Mary's Church is a parish church in Scarborough, North Yorkshire in the Church of England. It stands high above the old town, just below Scarborough Castle.

The church was built in the 12th century. It was once a large church with two towers (west and central), but was largely destroyed during the siege of Scarborough Castle in the English Civil War. The church was rebuilt in the late 17th century and restored in the mid 19th century. The building now has a square tower at the east end, replacing the former central tower, and a series of stone vaulted side chapels on the south side. The internal walls are almost covered with late 18th century and early 19th-century wall monuments, including one by Roubiliac to Elizabeth Craven.
