St. Mary the Virgin & All Saints, Potters Bar

DSCN0835DSCN0836Potters Bar doesn’t look it’s best in the rain  but St. Mary’s is a real gem and worth a visit. It is open from 12 noon to 2pm every Tuesday, Weds and Thurs. It is a pity that this isn’t put on the website (, although there is much else to discover there. That apart, this is an interesting church with much to see. I found a selection of the ‘What we do in church and why leaflets’ and some marmalade for sale as well as some tea towels, cards and a guide.

There is a votive stand to use and a history display as the church is celebrating it’s centenary this year. ‘Saints and Pilgrims’ was also there. There were some friendly stewards and a toilet to use. There is information on the ‘Zeppelin Cross’ which was made from a downed airship and also on HMS Poppy a corvette from the second world war whose bell is hung in church. There is quite a bit to see here and a lot of effort has gone into this. A good church from the point of view of this study.
