St Mary's Church 

Its well worth the time to visit the church - St Mary's church dates back to 12th century and boasts the largest unsupported wooden ceiling in the country and a locally built church organ which is of critical acclaim.  

 

-  The History Society – Newent War Memorial - Members of the Newent Local History Society have been researching the names on the Newent War memorial with a view to producing a book about the Newent men who gave their lives during the two World Wars. They were exhibiting their research in St Mary’s Church which, it is hoped, will prompt relatives of the fallen to come forward with more information. It is clear that there are some names missing from the memorial and proposals are being put forward to rectify this.

 

Tea, coffee and cake are also available so you can have a rest from the hustle and bustle of the streets and enjoy the exhibition.
