Where we’ve helped: St Mary, Beverston

One of the biggest grants awarded by GHCT in 2017 was a £10,000 donation to St Mary’s church in Beverston. Dating back to Norman times the building has been added to and changed over the years and sits in an idyllic rural location.
Last year a major upgrading project took place, helping to make the church more accessible and useable.

A former fuel store has been converted into a WC, and a new pathway installed to it through the churchyard.

New pantry fittings have been installed to form a kitchenette in the room below the tower.

New glazing to the screen and arch leading into a side chapel means that this can be used separately for small gatherings and meetings.

Churchwarden Richard Waldram said: “Our new kitchen facilities have already been put to good use providing congregation and visitor refreshments, and we’re looking forward to welcoming visitors during GHCT’s Ride+Stride event later in the year.”

The church is open to visitors every day, for more information visit: St Mary, Beverston
