Extensive repairs to the roof and the tower stonework

A very slight leak from a lead valley over many years led to wet-rot in Oak supporting timbers above one of the aisles of this charming perpendicular style church dating from the late c15.

As this leak resulted from the introduction of a slate roof and gutter installed in the late 18th century, now at the end of it's serviceable life, it was agreed that the best solution was to replace the slate with lead and make careful alterations to just the centre of the timber boarding reducing disruption to the aisle below. This and the careful repairs to timbers are almost impossible to spot from the floor below.

Extensive repairs to tower stonework were carried out at the same time, giving the sandstone masonry at higher level a new lease of life.
