Work is underway at St Mary’s Church, Beverley, to save its remarkable collection of medieval and Tudor roof bosses thanks to a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of £421,400 awarded earlier this year. Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project focuses on the 600 bosses on St Mary’s ceilings, which are at risk due to the church’s crumbling stonework.
That St Mary at Beverley is one of the most beautiful parish churches of England is universal knowledge.
