THis picture shows one of the many stained glass windows in St Mary's Church Claxby

For a brief history and description of the church, click here.

We took advantage of the first lockdown to have some building work done in the church. This work, which involved re-plastering of part of the west wall to replace crumbling lime mortar and cleaning the upper windows, has now been finished. 

Building work does make a mess so several parishioners spent time beforew Christmas giving the church a good clean and clearing away several months' accumulations of creepy crawlies. The vestry is quite cosy now with a newish fitted carpet. 

The funeral of the Rev'd David Smith, who was vicar in here in the early 1970’s, took place on Tuesday 1st December. He is buried next to his parents in the churchyard.
