Push is on to save medieval church

PLANS to renovate the chapel at St Mary's Church in Cricklade are vital to preserve the medieval heritage of the town, says a parish priest.

   The north chapel is believed to have been built sometime in the 15th century, but without the installation of anchors, the archway between the  

north aisle and north chapel could collapse.   

   Parish priest, Father Richard Barton, said: "This arch has moved out of position and would probably collapse. We hope to put rods in to hold it in position."

   It will enable old temporary supports to be removed, and then there 

are plans to renovate the chapel.

   The Friends of St Mary's Church was set up in 1998 to raise money to maintain the church.

   The next meeting of the group will take place at the church on March 11.

   For more details on how to join call Gerry Dudley on 01793 750107.
