Holy Trinity roof project
Holy Trinity's roof became unsafe due to dry rot. We are working to secure the building for the next 100 years.
Phase 1, the nave and aisle roofs, is now complete. The roofs were 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.
Phase 2, repairing and re-slating the chancel organ chamber & vestry roofs, is currently in progress.
Our boiler has been declared "immediately dangerous" and so we are looking ahead to phase 3 to upgrade the heating to make it effective and energy effecient. Not only will this make the building more welcoming but also more usable for community use.
We are very grateful for support from:
