Our grade II* listed Church, which dates from the mid-13th century, is in need of urgent repairs to its roof and masonry. This work is needed in order to prevent further deterioration and to ensure that it remains a welcoming space for worship and becomes a focal point for community activities and for visitors to our village.
The restoration project covers the most urgent works to renew the roof covering of the building, except the chancel which, although in need of repair, is currently weatherproof; urgent repairs to the masonry; and improvements to the above and below-ground drainage.
The cost of this project is in excess of £350,000. Through grant applications, a significant private donation and community fundraising activities we have achieved this target. Work started in October 2016 and is due for completion in May 2017.
