Tower Restoration

Following the award of £214,500 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund towards restoring St Marie’s tower and lantern, work began in June 2019.

The tower was dismantled stone by stone and rebuilt. The sloping pediment was repointed and clad in lead to prevent rainwater penetration.

Inside the church rotted lengths of the main roof purlins were replaced. Major cracks to the masonry in the west wall were found and had to be repaired and the wall made more rigid. This additional work, heavy rain in early 2020 and the pandemic added many weeks to the project.

A digital carillon that chimes the hour and plays part of the Lourdes Hymn at noon and 6 p.m. was also installed.

The completion of the work in October 2020 is a terrific achievement for all. Our new challenge is to meet the second part of the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s requirements: promotion of the heritage—so watch this space!

We would like to thank the National Lottery Heritage Fund and players of the National Lottery for the financial support received.
