We have the builders in! Which is good news in one sense, as it means we are tackling much-needed repairs. But it also means we're struggling to arrange consistent opening hours because of safety implications and the endless dust! We hope to be back to normal by mid-December and with a wonderfully repaired elevation overlooking Upper Rock Gardens.
We have listed below the opening times that we're pretty sure we can commit to throughout the works. If you would like to visit and the hours below are not convenient, please call us on 01273 698601. We will always try to accommodate you.

We rely upon volunteers to open the church and keep both it and our visitors safe. If you would like St Mary's to be open for longer hours, please consider joining our church-openers rota. See here for information about volunteering.
Sometimes the church is closed unexpectedly because of events. If you are making a special visit to see the church, please contact the churchwardens in advance to ensure that it will be open.
