FUNERALS

We hope to be able to offer funerals in church from the week beginning June 15th but are awaiting further guidelines from the Government/Diocese. If you are in the unfortunate position of needing to arrange a funeral and wish it to be in church then do mention this to the Funeral Director or enquire directly to the Vicar to ask if it is possible.

St Wystan’s Church Conservation Management Plan

St Wystan’s church has been designated by the Church Buildings Council and Historic England a Major Parish Church because of its exceptional historic significance.  It is one of 300 out of more than 15,000 in the country and its importance lies in the survival of the crypt with its vaulted ceiling and barley twist columns and chancel above, thought to date from the 9th century.  If you haven’t visited the crypt then it is well worth a visit though care needs to be taken on the uneven steps worn away by pilgrims over the years.

Following from this designation, the Parochial Church Council (PCC) has adopted a Conservation Management Plan, mainly compiled by Richard Finch with input from Virginia Davis, Mark Parsons the church architect and Andy Austen. The document brings together historical information, documents and policies concerning the building, its relationship with the village and its conservation.  It will be updated regularly and used as a basis for considering any future changes to the building and to assure potential funders that the PCC values and understands the building in its care. at Newton Solney
