Open Days

For many years, St Andrew’s has taken part in the National Heritage Open Days Festival.  This year is no different!

For the very first time, the church will be open every day of the ten-day Festival which runs from 9th – 18th September.  There will be guided tours of the church.  These will normally take place in the afternoons (green times below).
At other times, (in blue) there may be a knowledgeable steward on duty for some periods; you can book a tour, using the form below – or a self-guided leaflet and information boards are available that tell the fascinating 1,000-year history of St Andrew’s.

There are times when the church is in use (red).  On Sunday mornings, our morning sevice normally finishes at about midday (a bit earlier on 11th September)  and a church “MiniRingers” club would make a Thursday afternoon visit rather disruptive.  The church is normally locked at about 4.00pm (though that could be delayed if you give notice).
The table below shows what you can expect.   The church will open at 10.00am each day and three timed tours are scheduled – but, on “blue days”, you will need to book!
