St. Mary the Virgin Denbury Bell Restoration Appeal

Charity description

St. Mary the Virgin Denbury Bell Restoration Appeal logo
The Parish Church, St Mary the VIrgin, Denbury, Devon, England, Bell Restoration Appeal.

St. Mary the Virgin PCC has launched a Bell Restoration Appeal to raise funds to carry out a complete restoration of its five bells, the first dating from 1631, and to introduce a new 6th bell. During 2018 the church celebrates its 700th anniversary since being consecrated and it is hoped to complete the work by then. Denbury is steeped in history, once being in the care of a monk called Aeldred, who became Archbishop of York in 1060 and crowned William the Conqueror King of England in 1066. Denbury is a small rural village which has developed under the lea of the regional landmark of Denbury Down. For nearly 400 years the bells, now requiring restoration and replacement, have been declaring the Christian presence in this Devon Village. We now need your help to raise £120,000 to continue that 'declaration. Thank you for taking the time to read about our appeal and we hope you are able to make a donation.
