CLOSURE OF ALL SAINTS FOR REPAIR AND IMPROVEMENT FROM AUGUST 2022.

Builders will start urgent work to the repairs of All Saints church tower and the construction of a new kitchenette and toilet extension from approximately the end of August 2022, until Spring 2023. From July onwards while the work is progressing, access to the church will be out of bounds to the public and no services will be taking place for insurance, public liability and health and safety reasons. During the construction period, there will be a ground level perimeter exclusion area at the base to the tower which will be scaffolded to the full extent of its impressive height to give access to the corona (the masonry around the top of the tower). The church yard will be fully accessible. Other temporary works will include new external drainage, which will cause temporary access measures to the north side of the church and church yard, but access to the ash lawn will remain, although limited periodically.
