St Mary's Church, Headley

St Mary’s Church is a beautiful Victorian church that was consecrated in 1860. Toilets and a servery for the provision of
refreshments or a meeting room were not considered then. Times change along with the usage of the Church taking on a wider
range of activities An extension was planned, and over several years of planning, approval and fundraising it has been completed.

The extension comprises an attractive octagonal building (that has become known as The Octagon) that is entered from the nave of St Mary’s or externally.

It is equipped with toilets and a servery and has a useful and attractive area for meetings and circulating. To make the opening in the nave a stained glass window had to be removed and repositioned in the Octagon.
