St Giles’ Church was built about half a mile to the north of the original city walls and, at that time, there were green fields between the church and the city. The setting of St Giles’ has changed radically since those days and the building has had a varied history throughout the ages.
On this web-site the development of three aspects of the church building are offered:
* The Bells
* The Organ
* The stained Glass.
An Illustrated Guide
A more comprehensive understanding of the fabric of the building is presents in an excellent illustrated guide prepared by Catherine Barrington-Ward, a former churchwarden of St Giles’. The text of the guide was revised and extended by Mark Barrington-Ward following the death of his wife. A copy of the guide can be purchased for £5.00 from St Giles’ Church. If you wish to order a copy by post, please contact the Church Secretary, sending a cheque for £6.50 made payable to St Giles’ PCC. The additional £1.50 is for postage and packing.
A list of current building works for maintenance and improvement of the building are also given on this section of the web-site.
