A Brief History of the Church of St Mary Magdalene

Final Destruction of St Mary Magdalene Church

The Church stood for a further 17 years and saw its final days as a children's playground. Deemed as dangerous, a controversial decision was taken in 1957 to demolish the structure. 

No faculty for the demolition of the Church has been found.

The Friends of Shopland Churchyard strongly feel that her History should not be allowed to pass away!
