Grants support major repairs to Saxon church
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.”
