Discover de Crypt – Take a Pew

Would you like to take a pew?

Not all our pews will be re-instated after renovation and we want to find good homes for them.

So this coming weekend (8th-11th December) we will hold a Discover DeCrypt Fundraiser Pew Auction.  Bidding will take place between noon on Fri 8 Dec and noon on Mon 11 Dec. More details on the linked flyer!

Starting in early December the pews in the nave of St Mary de Crypt will be carefully removed prior to the main works. A selection will later be re-instated around the ‘cross’ in the nave, leaving space for more flexible and comfortable seating in the rest of the church.

The pews have all been recorded by Avon Archaeology, and a selection will be lovingly restored while the church is closed. Now we want to make sure the other pews go to a good home. The pews will be sold by auction. All proceeds will go to the Discover DeCrypt project.

So if you are interested in preserving a part of St Mary de Crypt church in your home, remember these dates.

Our pew auction will run from 12 noon on Fri 8 Dec until 12 noon on Mon 11 Dec. There are 10 pews for sale and all can be made to your preferred length (choose between 2, 4 or 6 feet long). The auction will use a closed bidding system, so please send in your best and final bid. The ten highest bidders at noon on Dec 11th will be the lucky new owners of a pew. Please contact with your bid or with any questions.
