The Chancel roof is finished

I’m delighted to say that the chancel roof repairs (and associated drainage works) are now complete.   Many thanks to all who have contributed to this project, to

  • Peter Rogan Associates Ltd, our architect,
  • Elizabeth Bryans, Tony Cox and Chris Moody, who have with me formed the PCC’s project team,
  • to our contractors JTC roofing, and, of course,
  • to those who have helped raise and given the funds for this project, especially the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund for their generous grant which covered the bulk of the cost of making the chancel watertight.

Thank you all.

Here is a picture of the completed roof:

I write as the month of April comes to an end, and I’m delighted to say our roofing firm JTC Roofing Contractors Ltd has nearly completed the lead work.  Here are some photos to show the progress.
