Heritage Open Days 2021


This September we are excited to welcome new and previous visitors to St Mark's Church through the Heritage Open Day Festival

During selected days, as highlighted below, visitors to our beautiful Grade 1 listed church, will have the opportunity to examine and learn more about the architectural history art and design of the church and the people who influenced it. Varied displays will illustrate the day to day work of the church, along with some of the special events that have taken place.


This hidden gem has a plentiful amount of detail and history just waiting to be explored. With an exterior flanked with gargoyles, richly carved details, flying buttresses and a Spire of 185ft there's so much to explore.
