Briggs Event – 24 June

John Briggs Event

24 June (3.00 pm) at St Mary the Virgin, Nettlestead.

Please click here for details in a flyer.

The theme of the afternoon is the glass at St Mary, a church which was built to house fine glass in the 15th century. Although some was destroyed by a storm in the 18th century there is still much to admire as well as the two magnificent monuments to the two wives of Sir John Scott dated 1598 and 1616.

There will be two talks – “The History of Stained Glass” by Leonie Seliger from Canterbury Cathedral and “The History of our Church Glass” by the Rector, The Revd. Anthony Carr.

Tea will be at nearby Nettlestead Place, a medieval Manor House, by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Roy Tucker.

Tickets are £10 and obtainable from Marguerite Allen and full details are on the enclosed leaflet. It is hoped to ring the fine bells at St Mary before the talks. If you are interested, please contact Marguerite.
