Why we need your support 

Waterden’s Anglo-Saxon church has miraculously survived for 1000 years. It is much loved by locals and others for its beauty and spirituality and is still used as a place of Christian worship and a destination for visitors and pilgrims. But it has been a struggle to keep this Grade II* listed church and its churchyard in a good condition. Now a group of volunteers has set up a Friends group to put the maintenance of the church and its graveyard on a sustainable footing. 
By becoming a Friend you will help to provide a regular income to ensure the church continues for future generations. The money will cover daily maintenance and running costs. We also want to make the church better known locally and further afield by telling the fascinating story of the church and promoting it as a place to visit.

Churchyard clean-up

On Monday 14 August nine people spent five-and-a-half hours slashing, mowing and strimming the overgrown churchyard. It is now free – more or less – of brambles and nettles. While the cattle looked on in amazement, we laboured away, stopping only to munch chicken kebabs from the barbecue and drink Alison Wakeman’s welcome tea. We hope to keep the churchyard looking this neat and tidy from now on.

Thanks to Adam Bunkle, Kate Libovitz, Kit Pike, Christine Abel, Andy Culshaw, Cath O’Driscoll, Sarah Dyson, Michael Prest and Lucy Hodges for their efforts.
