The grade I listed church is situated approx. 10 miles East of Hull on the North bank of the Humber. The church had been subject to lead theft to the chancel and nave aisles. The PCC were successful in obtaining an EH/HLF grant in order to fund the much needed repair work.
The project investigation stage identified that repair work to the glazing and to arrest and make good damage from structural movement caused by roots from nearby trees was required.
The works comprised a tree root barrier installation, cintec anchor installation and masonry repairs, renewal of the aisles and chancel roofs in terne-coated stainless steel, glazing repairs, internal rendering and decoration, monument conservation and external drainage with new soakaways.
