Roof project

Dry rot was first discovered in 2013, investigations showed that the damage was extensive and the building was closed in August 2014.

The entire roof was stripped, roof timbers affected by dry rot repaired, and slates replaced and re-laid. Gutters were reformed to improve drainage of rainwater and reduce risk of further dry rot in the future.

After a huge project of work, that we hope will secure the building for the next 100 years, the building reopened on 11th June 2016.

The old boiler failed so we have replaced it and upgraded the heating to make it effective and energy efficient. The tower roof has also been repaired and re-leaded.

We are very grateful for support from:

  • The Heritage Lottery Fund
  • The National Churches Trust
  • WREN
  • The Garfield Weston Foundation
  • The Nottinghamshire Historic Churches Trust
