A new guide to St Mary Magdalene Church Stilton tells of the lives of ordinary people (and a few extraordinary characters too) throughout the centuries, living, working and worshipping together. The church’s history reflects the unique significance of Stilton as both an agricultural settlement on the edge of the Fens and a staging point on the Great North Road.
Through here have passed travellers of all descriptions, from Roman legions to Civil War armies and Napoleonic prisoners of war. So for a small church in a small parish, St Mary’s retains memories of a surprising number of interesting people and the times in which they lived.
