35 people, all seemingly very satisfied customers, have been along to our guided tours of St Mary’s Church and to the top of the tower so far this year. The following dates are available so that you don’t miss out on this opportunity:
- Sunday, August 12, 2pm
- Friday, August 31, 7pm
They will last about two hours with refreshments available between church and tower tours. On August 31, we shall do the tower first whilst it is still light.
Learn about the history of the building work and the workings of the Church in England over the last 800 years from the tour of the inside of the church. We point out additional information gleaned during the repairs and re-ordering that took place in the first five months of 2018. See the new adaptable layout and easy access.
The tower tour includes the ringing room and the spiral staircase to see the clock room, the bells and out onto the top. There are 81 steps to the top and some agility is needed to get out of the trapdoor onto the roof. So far all but two have successfully tried and succeeded in getting out on top to see the village from a very different viewpoint.
There is no charge although generous donations (Gift Aided if possible) towards the Restoration Fund will be greatly appreciated to enable us to start to look into roof repairs.
It would help our planning if you would kindly book in advance with Geoff Pullin on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01327 871806.
