Heritage Open Days 2019: St Margaret of Antioch
St Margaret of Antioch church building dates from the mid-twelfth century, and much of the stonework (as well as the font) is original. It is one of just two parish churches in the City with a Grade One listing.
One of only two Grade I listed Parish Churches in the city, St Margaret's was built in the mid-12th century. Behind the heavily-restored exterior, substantial parts of the original Norman building remain, alongside later medieval additions. Furnishings range from the original 12th-century font to a much-admired modern sculpture of the Madonna & Child.
No booking required
Refreshments and a quiz for children will be available. Volunteers will be on hand to tell you more about the church and its history.
