Restoration Phase 2:

In 2013 the first phase of the works to restore the church were completed.  The completed work addressed many of the significant issues identified in the surveyors report.  However, restoration work is still remains and in particular eth bell tower and bells, the stone crosses and preaching cross and the perimeter wall around the churchyard.

The success of the first phase has meant that we have the confidence to explore the costs and effort involved in completing the restoration.  As information emerges we will keep everyone up to date.
