Friends of the Priory Church Edington
- Restore and maintain the church
- Care for the furnishings
- Enable it to be a place of inspiration
- Ensure it is a house of devotion
Edington Priory Church is one of the important village churches of England, graded 4* by Simon Jenkins in his "1000 Best Churches". Built in 1361 by William of Edington, Bishop of Winchester, it is an example of the transition from the medieval decorated to the perpendicular style.
The church has fine 17th century plaster ceilings and wood furnishing, underwent a substantial restructuring in the late 1800s and has also been sensitively re-ordered in the 20th Century.
Welcoming and well-maintained, visitors will see all this and appreciate the skilled work of generations who have cared for the place.
Regularly used for worship, weddings, baptisms and funerals, the church also has a wonderful acoustic and is therefore host to many concerts and other events, details of which can be found on our website (www.edingtonfriends.org.uk)
But maintaining the fabric of a building such as this is very costly. Since their foundation in 1956, the Friends have made grants totalling over £100,000 and the need continues.
