Phase One - 2015/16
Removal and treatment of dry rot in the North Aisle
Rebuilding the steeple - and restoration of the gilded cross
Building lavatory and other facilities 

We were awarded a grant of £250,000 from the English Heritage Lottery Fund to begin work on the church's restoration. This grant covered most of the basic structural work of the first stage of restoration; the removal and treatment of the extensive dry-rot in the north aisle, rebuilding of the church steeple, and the building of lavatory facilities.  

Below is a video clip explaining the work to restore the turret and 
pinnicle on the church tower  which can be seen on the photograph of the church below.
