Looking forward

As you can imagine, we are anxious to keep this beautiful church with its wall paintings and garden in good repair and hopefully put a little by for research and perhaps an archaeological dig or a symposium in future years.

It costs £6,000 a year to maintain the church and churchyard and a 1000 year old building is a little needy!

We have launched a  Subscription Scheme for Friends of St. Mary’s.

For £25 a year you can help to keep the church in the state it is today and also help towards discovering more of its history. In return, and as a big thank you, you will receive advance notice of our events and a three monthly newsletter.

Forms and payment are on our website and also at the church.

We also have DVDs on the restoration for sale and a small booklet on the history of village and church as well as greetings cards.

Please become a Friend and make a difference to this unique place.
