The refurbishment of this church included repairs to the external fabric, incorporating stonework replacement, re-roofing works with Welsh slates and extensive leadwork and timber repairs.

We worked closely with Philip Graham of Duncan + Graham Architects and conservation architect John Chater throughout this interesting project to bring all the required elements to fruition.

Much of the specialist work was undertaken by our own craftsmen, in particular the lead valleys and flashings which weighed nearly 13 tonnes in total. Some of the diminishing Welsh slates to the Nave roof were up to a square metre in size and between 10-12mm thick. In addition the aisle roofs were also replaced in Welsh slates. In order to complete these works, we erected an extensive temporary roof to cover both the nave and aisle roofs to ensure the church could remain in operation at all times.
