Story

We fell in love!

On our frequent travels on the East Coast Line, we were intrigued to know the story behind this isolated church. A prominent landmark, it stands alone in the Cambridgeshire countryside just a field away from the train! 

Why is it alone, why no village, and what was its history?

We discovered it is a Grade II* listed church with medieval origins, dating from the 13th. Century. It was not always so isolated as it stands on the site of a medieval village on the borders of the Great Fen. 

Today, 15 million passengers annually catch a glimpse of St. Andrew's and for many there is a personal connection as with an old friend. 

It is now owned by the Friends of the Friendless Churches and many thousands has been spent on securing the exterior of the building. The interior remains a huge challenge and the floors, windows and chancel need particular attention.

Text MEGW68 with your amount to 70070 to donate to St Andrew's Church, Wood Walton or look up our JG fundraising page which is St Andrew's Church, Wood Walton.
