Shakespeare's church crumbling Jan 2 2007

THE STRATFORD church where William Shakespeare worshipped and is buried 
urgently needs up to a million pounds worth of repairs.

The Holy Trinity Church attracts thousands of visitors annually but 
needs the cash to stop the oldest church in the town from crumbling.

It dates back to the 13th century and was where Shakespeare was 
baptised, where he worshipped with his family and where he lies buried 
in the chancel.

Money is being raised urgently by the Friends of Shakespeare's Church 
which will go towards repairing a number of parts of the building 
including the tower and spire, the chancel roof, windows and stonework.

A spokesman said the restoration work was carried out in stages but 
funding to make repairs to the whole church is thought to be around
