The Development Appeal - the final stage
During the past year major restoration and conservation work has taken place, cleaning the inside and outside of the building, re-wiring, re-lighting, re-painting, restoring crumbled stonework, conserving wood and providing full access to the Old Library and through the churchyard. In addition a wide programme of interpretation is being made available, telling the heritage story of St Mary's. Click here to read more about the work that has taken place over the last year.

Our team of volunteer photographers documented every stage of the building works. To view their pictures, please visit the photography exhibition on the heritage website.

All this has been enabled by the award of an Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £3.4million, a grant from the Clore Foundation, the University of Oxford and the Parochial Church Council.
