Church of St Mary the Virgin, Hartfield – Reordering

We have been working with the PCC of St Mary’s for around 20 years to try and achieve the goal of installing a flushing toilet within the Grade I listed medieval church and finally managed to achieve it as part of a wider reordering scheme which included remodelling the ground stage of the tower, inserting a mezzanine floor to create a small meeting room, relocating the font to make way for a children’s area (to be fitted out as part of a future phase) and a bespoke kitchen servery was installed in the northwest corner of the nave.

Construction cost: £200k

The project also included extensive excavations through the churchyard to connect to mains drainage, lighting in the churchyard, replacing the boiler and upgrading the heating system and installation of a new Audio / visual system.

Extensive consultation was carried out with the DAC, Church Buildings Council and Historic England as well as with the local community, and the majority of funding has been raised locally by the congregation and wider community.
