It has been a hammer blow to villagers, but today the residents of Beachamwell came together to begin the effort to restore their beloved church.

On Wednesday, the 11th-century St Mary's was devastated by a terrible fire that gutted the thatched roof and left the round tower badly damaged by flames.

The church had been undergoing work after thieves stole lead from the roof.
