St. Mary’s Church
St. Mary’s Church
The church building is predominantly 13th century (1200 AD)The south aisle and porch were added in the 14th century . The church was re-ordered in 1974, in the early days of Milton Keynes. Although this has taken away some of the furniture usually associated with a Parish Church, it does give the visitor the experience of a church that has been successfully adapted to suit the needs of the modern congregation and the community it serves. The 15th century Tower, rises to a height of 60 feet above the ground. Six bells are housed in the chamber, the oldest two dated 1653.
The church forms part of the Woughton Ecumenical Parish, which includes the Church of England, Methodist, United Reformed and Baptist denominations. St. Mary’s Church serves the communities of Woughton on the Green, Woughton Park, Peartree Bridge, Eaglestone. and Passmore. The Minister is the Rev. Paul Norris.
The Parish of Old Woughton is exceptional in that it contains one of the 13 villages taken in by the New Town development in 1967. Woughton is the most ‘unspoilt’ of the villages having been maintained within a grid square and bounded by the Ouzel Valley Parkland, protecting it from much of the character changing consequences of development. At its core, the Scheduled Ancient Monument and extensive Village Greens protect the shrunken medieval village landscape which has resulted in minimal impact to the heart of the Parish and original village.
Woughton Heritage is a local group of volunteers who share an interest in this rich historical and rare heritage landscape.
The group was established in 2015 and has, since its inception delivered three high quality Heritage Open Day exhibitions, attended and displayed work at other events (Archaeology Day; Heritage Festival) and has had over 1,700 people enjoy, share, and learn more about the area from the research achieved to date. Further, the information gathered has contributed to helping to secure a further Village Green and protect local heritage buildings at risk and feed into the Conservation Area review and recently the New Town Register Consultation.
The work has been supported by the Community Foundation and Ward Councillor Grants which have provided the means and resources to produce and display material in a professional and in the most engaging way. Recently, a generous donation in memory of former Councillor Richard Freeman, born locally, will enable us to leave a legacy with a guided walk booklet underway. Something for residents, visitors and future generations to enjoy. We now have over 60 information panels / boards/ maps and posters that provide a wealth of information that can be reused and presented in a ‘pop-up’ fashion making the most use of each piece of research.
We plan to develop a website and platform and other mediums to share our work and celebrate this amazing and very special Parish. In the meantime, if you would like to join the team and participate at any level that suits you (informally or socially, mailing list or major research!) then do contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
As well as exhibitions we have held a number of other events which has allowed us to develop as a group and provide further forums to present our work and bring the community together. We have had Quiz Nights, Coffee mornings and walks and talks.
