St Mary de Crypt

St Mary de Crypt Gloucester

A project in which we have been involved from the start has officially reopened.

St Mary de Crypt dates from the late 15th Century and has one of the few remaining Tudor schoolrooms in England adjacent to it. The church is significant for its association with famous people, the most known of which was Jemmy Wood, a penny-pinching character thought to have inspired Dickens’ Scrooge.
