Beverley’s ‘town church’ achieves milestone in restoration works on 500th anniversary of dramatic event

29 April 2020

Today, April 29th, St Mary’s Church Beverley – home to some of the finest medieval architecture of any parish church in the country – announces that the first phase in its major restoration programme has reached the halfway point on schedule, despite the coronacrisis  and the three storms which have passed through since the scaffolding was put up in February!

Urgent restoration works begin at St Mary’s with National Lottery support

11 December 2019

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.
