St Margaret of Antioch, Sotterley

Sotterley St Margaret of Antioch

Our church, St Margaret of Antioch, is situated in the park next to Sotterley Hall. It has Grade 1 status and was built in the 14th century.

Amongst the church’s fine features is the 15th century screen and some wonderful brasses. We have frequent visitors and there is a clearly marked footpath to the church across the park.

St Margaret’s is a favourite venue for local weddings and has easy access to the church with plenty of parking. We have one service a month but at Easter on Palm Sunday the other eight churches in our group join us in a procession through the park, pausing on the way for readings, before entering the church for a service.

We are a very small hamlet of 100 people. As well as the church there is a war memorial and a chapel which has services at Christmas, Easter, and Harvest Festival. It is well supported.

Our fundraising each year consists of the Hall gardens in February being open for the public to come and admire the snowdrops, and in May we have a fete and garden opening again. This is always well attended.
