‘Have a Go’ – 28 August

St Mary’s Church in Adderbury is inviting members of the public to find out more about the progress of its tower restoration project between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm and ‘have a go’ at some of the historic building restoration techniques being used by the project’s contractors, Stone Edge.

With guidance from expert stonemasons, members of the public can have a go at pointing, chisel stone and view apprentice pieces. The £400,000 needed for the repairs to the historic church tower was mainly funded by a £290,400 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, money raised by National Lottery players.
