Church Crawls were begun some years ago and run through the months May to October. We visit other churches around and about - mostly leaving the Triangle between 5pm/5.30pm. Sometimes we have been far enough afield to take a half day. We look at the church building inside and out, its place and history in its community, sometimes with benefit of input from a member of the host congregation, perhaps a churchwarden. We conclude our visit by saying the office of Compline, and visiting a nearby hostelry. Our trips have been organised by different volunteers over the years, whose careful preparation and reconnoitring is aimed at providing easy journies, good parking, and warm welcomes wherever we go ! More recently, these duties have been undertaken by Andrew Densham, with a vital input from Christopher Marsden-Smedley, whose architectural and historical skills ensure that in a highly pleasurable way we, we feel we’ve added to our understanding of what our ancient places of worship have to tell us of people’s religious beliefs and practices over time, and the crucial role the parish church has played in the communities of which they constitute the heart.
