St Mary’s is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful churches in England
One of the great masterpieces of Gothic art Dr. John Bilson
Unequalled in England and almost without rival on the continent of Europe Sir Tatton Sykes
The perfection of its proportions, the noble simplicity of its stone mouldings, its lightness and many changing vistas (makes it one of the finest churches in England) Sir John Betjeman
But the stonework of this beautiful 900-year-old church is crumbling.
St Mary’s Church needs £5m of restoration work.
St Mary’s is a special gift left by previous generations – help us raise the money needed to make sure that this gift is handed on to the next generation so that they too can enjoy it as a place of awe and wonder and peace.
