Matthew Saunders, honorary director of The Friends of Friendless Churches in Mundon, England, reports that the organization has received a UK£138,000 grant from English Heritage to preserve St Mary's Church, the medieval chapel of a manor house. (photo)

The chapel dates to the 14th century and features a rare 16th century timber-framed belfry. The grant will help stabilize the church. The building was constructed on clay, which could lead to its eventual collapse.
