The Church of St Mary the Virgin, Nash, is the parish church of the village of Nash, situated about 3 kilometres (1.9 miles) south of the city of Newport, South Wales. Described as the cathedral of the moors , the large church is medieval in origin, with additions and restorations dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. The 15th-century steeple has been described as unique in South East Wales. Since 3 January 1963 it has been designated a Grade I listed building, primarily due to its medieval tower with fine spire.
