Open Church
The ancient parish church of St. Margaret’s, Wolston, is open to visitors every afternoon between 2PM and 4PM Monday to Friday, from Easter Monday until the 26th September 2014. Stewards are on duty to welcome visitors and to chat with them about the building, its history and what goes on there nowadays. Alternatively visitors may just wish to spend time quietly in this special place. The first Vicar of this parish (which now serves Wolston, Brandon and Bretford) was installed in 1216 and a small section of the original church building remains with additions and alterations made over the centuries up to recent times. It is a fascinating and peaceful place and it’s rural setting makes it an attractive place to visit.
Arrangements can be made for small parties to be given a conducted tour of the church outside the weekday opening hours - those wishing to arrange this kind of visit can do so through the Parish Office which is open weekday mornings. The phone number is 02476 542722.
