Renewal Fund- Securing your Heritage

An ancient church like ours is always in need of of maintenance and restoration. It is also always necessary to consider whether it is able to meet the needs of the present generation in terms of facilities.

During 2010 we have ,with the support of English Heritage, been carrying out lots of investigations into the state of the building and its contents.  We find that the Tower which dates from the 15th Century is in need of restoration- we will do this in 2011.  The Savile Chapel is an outstanding nationally important space.  There are a range of 15th Century windows which will be restored and the unique East window in the chapel is falling to pieces.  We will tackle all these next year and into 2012.  In addition our lighting is now a health and safety hazard and is unable to display the glory of the building adequately. We hope to put in an energy efficient scheme which will allow us to see our monuments and ceilings to good effect and allow us to hold exhibitions more easily.

We still need to raise £60,000 towards this work. 
Look at a few of our photos showing how the church is used and please give generously.
