Heritage Open Days 

Restoration and renewal work has begun at St.Mary’s and continues at a pace and will do so through to February 2020.

During this period there will be restricted access to parts of the exterior and interior as work progresses. We ask for your understanding when visiting this ancient holy place.

A number of photographs showing progress of the work are shown below:

The church is open each Sunday for services and during the week on:

Tuesday morning from 10:00am when Churchyard Action are available

Wednesday morning from 10-00am when there is a service of Holy Communion

This is a wonderful opportunity to visit our beautiful church and discover more of is history and worshipping life.  We have new brochures to enable visitors of all ages to get the most out of their visit. All are warmly welcome to come along and visit.
