Halesworth & Southwold Community News May 2019 25
STEP inside St Mary’s and you’ll find a wealth of social, cultural and architectural history stretching back over twelve centuries. Look for the Heritage Trail booklet near the North Porch Entrance and you will be guided through a rich discovery of treasures such as the ‘danestones’, remnants of an early baptismal font, signature mouldings of our Mediaeval benefactors, Victorian Gothic renovation and embellishment and beautiful momentos from more recent history.
will meet some celebrated, interesting and colourful people from the past of Halesworth. Let us first introduce you to the D’Argenteins, a family who arrived on these shores with the Norman invasion and had spread their power base and property holdings to include Halesworth by the 12th century. Thus began the conversion of Halesuworda from a settlement between two rivers into a bustling and thriving market town, endorsed by expanding a small Saxon church into an impressive Mediaeval flint church and tower in a series of regenerations. St Mary’s is regenerating again as we are working to create: a more comfortable place of worship and sanctuary which is accessible to all; a flexible space, which can be used for a range of community activities; a church that visitors, schools, tourists, pilgrims will enjoy and a building that will survive for future generations. We seek to: care for a beautiful mediaeval building; cherish the artefacts and stories within it; share our common heritage with all; raise funds to regenerate the building. The building will continue
in its primary role as a place of worship, but its other functions will be managed as a social enterprise aiming at making the building self-sustaining. We have a ten-year plan and phase one is nearly complete. The Victorian pews are removed and replaced by chairs, rendering the church back much as it would have been for worship in mediaeval times. The whole interior feels lifted and is flexible
St Mary’s Church, Halesworth
for appropriate community activities within.
New electrics and heating will follow and eventually levelling and a labyrinth set into the stone floor. New lighting will be fitted and natural lighting enhanced by the introduction of clear glass at high level. The outer aisles will become adaptable units to provide kitchen, toilets, children's area, meeting rooms and office space. Interior walls will be restored and stonework cleaned. Peeling plasterwork, stone carvings, damaged stained glass and other artefacts will be restored.
The Friends of St Mary’s is actively fund-raising to support the regeneration work. Will you help us? Contact us by email: friendsofstmarys@ talktalk.ne

Fuel consumption and CO2* figures for the Volvo Cars range, in MPG (l/100km): WLTP Combined 26.2 – 117.7 (10.8 – 2.4). NEDC CO2 emissions 192 – 44g/km. Twin Engine WLTP
electric energy consumption 3.7 – 4.1 miles/kWh. Twin Engine WLTP all electric range 20.5 – 29.2 miles. Figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption and CO2 figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. *There is a new test used for fuel consumption and CO2 figures. The CO2 figures shown, however, are based on the outgoing test cycle and will be used to calculate vehicle tax on first registration. Preliminary data.
