St Mary in the Marsh

April 2022


Anyone interested to have an idea of the difficulties and processes of church repair and restoration may be interested in a current small exhibition in the church of St Mary, St Mary in the Marsh. It will be there until the end of April 2022. A simple layout in the north aisle, just photographs with explanatory text, it outlines the recent run of miscellaneous repairs, a contribution of over £20 000 having been made by Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust. Repairs illustrated include the lead cap to the spire, revealing fascinating sets of initials left by plumbers who have worked thereon over recent centuries. Ten to twenty minutes will suffice to digest this informative display in an atmospheric marsh church.
