Restoration project at St Mary's Church, Aylesbury

The 13th-century St Mary’s Church in Aylesbury was closed in April 1978 and virtually gutted so that a major resoration project could start.

It was planned, over the coming year, to spend more than £250,000 to change it to a dual-purpose building for both religious and social activities.
