Please join the SPAB and our Dorset Group at our next regional working party to the tower and churchyard of St Mary's Church in East Compton, Dorset. This two day working party will carry out essential maintenance work to this historic church tower, which is all that remains of St Mary's Church. It is a great chance to get hands-on, meet likeminded people, and help protect a beautiful historic building.

About the site: All that survives of St Mary's church is its 15th century Grade I-listed tower. This stands within a small, picturesque churchyard, which also contains listed tombs and boundary walls. The whole is a scheduled monument. In the 1980s, the SPAB took on ownership and management of the site where, for a time, it became the focus of the Society's annual working parties. The SPAB continues to manage the site, ensuring that it retains a rural quality that would have been appreciated by Dorset member Thomas Hardy. The site is open to visitors.

 

We hope to see you there.
