St Mary's Church - Houghton on the Hill

 

Towards the end of the twentieth century the village of Houghton-on-the-Hill and its church had almost dwindled to nothing more than a few lumps and bumps and a ruin. However, thanks to funding from several government bodies, numerous charities and private donations, together with the enthusiasm and hard work of The Friends of St Mary’s, the site has experienced a startling renaissance. Visitors from many parts of the world come to see the remarkable wall paintings, to worship at the church or to appreciate its beautiful setting.
