Get to know your church
5:57pm Tuesday 15th July 2014 in News
PEOPLE will get to take an insider’s tour of one of England’s greatest wool churches this month.
Get to Know Your Church is on Saturday, July 26 from 3pm to 6pm at St James' Church, Chipping Campden.
A team of guides will explain the building’s rich history and secrets and visitors will get the chance to go up the lofty bell tower and round the church yard’s historic tombs.
The tour will also include a peek in the 'muniment room' where ancient documents are kept as well as pausing by the organ to sample the church music.
Visitors will learn about the stories behind the church's features including why it includes half a 13th century stone font and how the congregation coped with bell ringers who were too noisy.
There will be a suggested donation of £5 to help to maintain the building.
