Open to the public, it is lovingly cared for by a dedicated group of CCT (Churches Conservation Trust) volunteers- all of whom would be delighted to welcome you to their lovely building. The magic of St Werburgh’s lies in its charming mix of down-to-earth cosiness and uplifting beauty. Such magic is the work of multiple generations who have left their mark on the church from the seventeenth century through to the present day. As such St Werburgh’s can be considered a microcosm of the history of England as a whole, as well as of the locality which has tenderly shaped the growth of the church in its own special way.                                                                                                                                                                                                   Words, however, can only convey so much. So why not pay us a little visit, to experience for yourself the uniqueness of this truly special building.

    I’d love to visit sometime! I’m working on family history, and have just found that my 2nd great grandparents were married at St Werburgh’s. They were Maria Milnes (1825-1892) and James J. Mills (1824-1904). They were married on 18 February 1845. They emigrated to the US around 1871 with 11 children.
