Clapham Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

St Mary the Virgin, Clapham has stood since the 12th Century. We need to make repairs and replace crumbling stonework around the windows both inside and out. The stained glass could fall out if left un repaired. The columns inside the church have cracks appearing. These need to be repaired incase the roof should collapse. The repairs have to be done by stonemasons. Expert craftsmen who can cut and replace the stone beautifully, allowing the building to remain as a place of worship and community use for generations to come.

What we'll deliver:

  • Repair stonework inside and outside the church
  • Repair columns inside the church
  • Preserve this historic building for future generations

Why it's a great idea:

Clapham village is a small rural community of approx 275 people. It is part of the Parish of Findon, Clapham and Patching which house approx 2600 people who care for three historic Grade 1 churches. St Mary the Virgin, Clapham is of great historic importance, and contains many brasses and carvings. It also has a beautiful, rare mural of tiles created by William Morris. These depict the four Archangels. The church is used by the local community school. It needs to be preserved for future generations to enjoy and to flourish spiritually.

Steps to get it done:

  • Raise £1000.
  • Raise £2000
  • Raise £5000
  • Raise £7000
  • Raise £10000
