On Saturday August 17, a group of about 40 members of the Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust paid a short visit to St Mary’s Church as part of an annual Historic Churches Tour guided by Bruce Bailey. Bruce was the author of the latest edition of Pevsner’s Northamptonshire. The visit was scheduled to start at 12.15pm.
The Trust organises its main fund raising to make grants to historic church buildings in the county with the Ride and Stride day on the second Saturday of September each year. It contributed £3,000 to St Mary’s towards the cost of the recent major works.
If you would like to take part in the sponsored walk or ride this September, sponsor forms and churches that will be open for the day are available from Chris Richards.
