About us

Founded in 2012

The Friends of St Mary's was conceived in 2012 and includes representatives of the community, the Higham Ferrers Tourism, Business and Community Partnership and the Parochial Church Council.

The object of the organisation is to assist in the preservation of our magnificent Grade 1 listed buildings:

  • St Mary's Church
  • Chantry Chapel
  • Bede House.

The Friends limit their support to the exterior preservation, repair, maintenance and restoration of these buildings and the churchyard.

We will work with the Parish Church Council to protect our heritage for future generations to enjoy.
