Restoration of St. Mary's

During 2007, major restoration work was carried out on the tower involving dismantling and rebuilding of the north-west corner, replacement and repair of defective stonework and pointing, and repair and sealing of both ends of the nave roof.  This work cost almost £204,000, a large proportion of which was raised locally through donations and fundraising events.

In 2010, another phase of the restoration project was completed.  This work involved the repair and/or replacement of stonework and extensive repointing on the South wall of the church.

In 2012, we spent almost £40,000 on the restoration of the 18th century clock and on internal restoration.  Extensive repairs to damaged plasterwork were completed and the nave and chancel were redecorated and electrical wiring replaced and upgraded to improve the lighting within the church.

In 2015, we spent about £30,000 on a complete replacement of the ageing heating system, so that we now have a nice warm church for services and other events.
