St Andrews Church Castle Combe
Why we need your help
St Andrew's Church, a wonderful Grade 1 listed building dating back to the 13th Century, stands in the heart of the village of Castle Combe. Today, we are open every day of the year for our community and the thousands of visitors who come from all over the world.
The church has some notable features including;
- the tomb of Walter de Dunstanville dated 1270
- the font at the entrance, which dates to 1450, is unique in its incorporation of a bookrest
- our famous faceless clock believed to have been made by a local blacksmoth and renowned as one of the oldest working clocks in the country
We have just completed a key phase of our Make History project, which has added a small and discreet extension, providing a fully-accessible WC, kitchenette and new vestry. Just as importantly, we have managed to enhance the main body of the church through opening up the lovely Knight's Chapel and exposing and repairing the medieval, oak-carved screen.
To complete this work we have had to take out a £90,000 loan and soon have to embark on further roof repair work. We get no Government or central Church funding, so the small local community is entirely dependent upon its own efforts and the support of visitors and those who love this special place.
Please do give generously to Make History in Castle Combe.
Your support in helping us to achieve these goals would be very much welcomed. Thank you for taking the time to visit this page and double thanks if you feel able to support.
