Heritage Lottery Fund logo Every five years, every parish church is inspected to see how the building is doing and what needs fixing. In late 2013, St Michael’s was inspected and a major set of repairs and restoration work was identified with an estimated initial cost of £125,000. Our Grade I listed parish church needed significant repairs.

A number of people in our community worked hard over several years to raise money and arrange the repairs. We were delighted to secure funding from Heritage England via the National Lottery’s Heritage Lottery Fund. The HLF provided a confirmed grant of £65,600 to the church for the church’s restoration and renewal project which represented 82% of the final total costs.

We hope these further details and timeline help to provide insight into what we did, why St Michael’s is such a special place of architectural importance and how the project progressed.
