St. Mary`s Church History
A thousand years of an English country church -- some key dates in the story of St. Mary's.
RESTORE APPEAL. The restore appeal was launched in 1993 to raise at least £20,000 for urgent repairs to St. Mary's Church. The huge success of the appeal with donations and fund raising events meant that over the past 18 years extensive work has restored the walls,roof,windows and tower,the interior has been cleaned and restored and a new wooden floor installed. The Restore Appeal has now been closed but fund raising continues with a new heating system and seating the next target.
KNEELERS. To celebrate the Millennium almost fifty new kneelers were made by parishoners to represent many aspects of village life.An album of photographs of the kneelers may be seen in the new display cabinet which from time to time has exhibits from the village archives.
