Welcome to St Andrew's

St Andrew's church stands isolated in fields north of Wood Walton village, which is located three miles east of the A1(M) in northwest Cambridgeshire.

On the top of the hill, St Andrew's churchyard is a tranquil place.

Surrounded by fields, only the occasional passing train breaks the silence.

A brief history

Although the Domesday Survey of 1086 recorded a church in the parish of Wood Walton, there is no evidence this early building was on the site of the current church.

Fundraising campaign

We've launched a Just Giving campaign to fundraise for essential repair work. The initial campaign has set target funding of £10,000 although total funding of a rolling programme of all repairs will be considerably higher.

Summary of St Andrew’s current problems

The building’s current problems include significant structural instability in the Chancel, subsidence/heave of the entire floor, decaying pews/platforms and excessive under-floor dampness. Additionally the multi-patched South Aisle roof sheeting, now fifty years old, is not totally watertight.

95% of monies given will be transferred to the F.O.F.C. to hold donations in a separate account for use of St Andrew’s at Wood Walton. Gift aiding your donation adds a further 25% to its value, so a donation of £10 with gift aid enhances its value to £12.50, less 5% for Just Giving fees, results in total donation of £11.88 being transferred to the F.O.F.C. Wood Walton account.
