Church ceiling and roof - result of report

A full inspection of the roof and ceiling by the church architect and the structural engineer was carried out on 17th November 2021.

We now have a detailed report of the construction and condition of the ceiling and roof, which dates from about 1436. The original construction is largely intact, and in reasonable condition! Extensive restoration took place in 1861, 1871, and in the mid 20th century.

The report shows that a comprehensive programme of roof and ceiling repairs is urgently needed, and we must start the necessary planning now.

Let’s hope we can match the vision of the people of 1436 to keep this building at the centre of our village life for the next six hundred years!
