St Mary the Virgin, Norton

During 2021, TAS volunteers began a recording programme of the monuments at St Mary the Virgin, Norton. This is a historic church, with its beginnings in pre-Norman times and it has remained an important focal point ever since for the local community.

The TAS programme concentrates on the existing above-ground monuments. So far, following national guidelines, more than 100 monuments have been photographed, measured, described, and inscriptions recorded. Additionally, parish christening, marriage and burial records have been used (among other sources) to research brief biographies.

The programme is ongoing, directed by Maureen Norrie. If you are interested to get involved, please email
