An in depth tour of St Mary’s, Dallinghoo, led by an expert An enthralled church-crawler since the age of four, he spends his time sharing his passion for these amazing buildings, praising and promoting them from lectern and pulpit. He gives many lectures and slide shows, has written over 200 church guidebooks, published other books and has broadcast on radio and TV. He is sure the love of churches is absorbing and infectious for people of all religions and of none. Also, that every old church is the most interesting in the country, because each has its own unique characteristics, well worth getting to know and love. His delightful, enthusiastic and well researched talks inspire his audiences.
We have recently spent more than £100,000 repairing the outside of the church. Come and see what we have done. We were unable to raise enough to repair the inside. Come and see what we shall be doing next – and what else we should like to be able to do.
