Heritage 700

St Mary’s Church Shotley Heritage 700 Committee1

This Committee was set up in 2000 to raise funds for the repair and improvement of St Mary’s. Since we have supported the full redecoration of the church, the repair of the roof, as well as the installation of a wonderful kitchen and toilet in the tower.



As the main support beam of the church porch has rotted through, the repair of the porch is our next project

Chairman – Peter de Boltz

Secretary – Margaret de Boltz
