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

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
