St Marys Church - Cloisters Development

In 2006 the Parochial Church Council (PCC) considered developments to support community life that centred on St Mary’s Church in Stansted, Kent. To achieve this, facilities such as a meeting room, hospitality facilities, toilets, improved disabled access and additional storage, were planned for a new extension to the main church. Construction works started in 2013 and in October 2015 the ‘Cloisters’ were officially opened and consecrated by the Bishop of Rochester.
Each stage of the development, preparation, groundwork, and the relocation of graves prior to construction was photographed. The following gallery forms a comprehensive photographic record and the images are courtesy of John Mattick.
