Grants support major repairs to Saxon church

    4 March 2019

    St Mary’s Church, Breamore, which was built in 980 and is one of the few surviving Saxon churches in the country, has undergone major repairs costing a little over £10,000.

    This has been paid for by grants of £5000 from the National Churches Trust in association with Hampshire & the Islands Historic Churches Trust and a further grant of £1000 from the All Churches Trust. The balance came from St. Mary’s own funds.

    The Rev Nicky Davies, priest responsible for the church, said: “We are very grateful for these grants which help us to maintain this very important and historic building. It is situated in a beautiful location in the grounds of the Breamore Estate and is an extremely popular wedding venue.”
