St. Clements Church

One of the gems of our Old Town is the Parish Church of St Clement which has completed a major restoration and reordering this year. St Clements was built on land given by Alan the Cheesemonger and his wife Alice to the Abbey of Fecamp, although this is the second church on the site; the first destroyed by flood and the French. Since 1380 when it was begun, the Church has seen many changes but it remains as an important record of the town’s history, a peaceful place of worship and now as a venue for concerts and all sorts of great community events.
There are many opportunities this week to enjoy St Clements and we hope you will sample at least one of them.
The Two Towers Trust was started in 1995 to raise funds for the maintenance of our two great Medieval churches. Please support our events
during the week and consider taking a subscription to the Trust and/or joining the small group of volunteers who organise the fundraising. Pick up a form in one of the churches or contact Hon Secretary Judith Cubison. 7 Laton Road, Hastings TN34 2ET. Tel: 01424 728941
