The first phase of the project is now underway with a faculty approved by the diocese and grant money from Erskine Muton.
B2 Architects Ltd and Conservation Contractor Ellis & Co. have been appointed to undertake this work which includes a replacement north porch which will have new glazed inner doors. The outer doors will be permanently open whilst the church is unlocked. The inner semi-glazed doors will allow visibility into the church and be draft-proofed. Both sets of doors will be power assisted. A motion sensitive light will be installed to light access and egress to/from the building. A fixed ramp will be temporarily installed for ease of access until the path leading to the building is re-graded as part of a later phase.
Work is expected to be completed by early July.
