St Patrick’s Church open day

St Patrick’s Church, Salter Street

“A striking & unexpected accent in a wholly rural landscape” (Quote from English Heritage)

Earlier this year, St Patrick’s Church, Salter Street achieved Grade II*listed status. The beautiful Victorian church, designed by Bidlake, had finally been recognised as the very special place it is; there are intricate carvings, ornate decorations, stunning murals and a wonderful ceiling.

To celebrate this, recently, there have been three open days allowing many people to come in and see the treasures for themselves. This will be repeated on:

Bank Holiday Monday 29th August

Visitors will be welcome between 10am-4pm. There will be

· accompanied tours

·
a chance to sit quietly

·
the Millennium Tapestry to see

·
books for sale

·
refreshments to enjoy

There are some interesting wildflowers growing in the meadow part of the churchyard too.
