Exploring the heritage of St Mary’s
St Mary’s Parish Church has partnered with DigVentures to launch Windows to the World, an interactive project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund to revitalise the church.
Besides necessary restorations, the project aims at refocusing St Mary’s position in the town and turning it into a heritage destination while still keeping its purpose as a house of worship.
Over the course of spring and summer 2021, we offered events and activities for people of all ages. We will be taking part in the Heritage Open Days on Saturday 11th September. Everyone is invited to join us in our exploration of the heritage and history of Barnard Castle’s oldest church.
900 years is a long time and you are bound to learn things you didn’t know before!
