The parish church of Swanage is dedicated to St Mary and was, with exception of the tower, entirely rebuilt in 1859/60 in Early English style.
The plain un-buttressed tower is supposedly of Saxon origin. It rises in four stages to a height of 80 ft. - the 3 lower stages of the tower are 4th century and the top built about 1620. An octagonal turret with stone spire adjoins the north transept.
