The Sinking Chancel
Over a number of years it has become increasingly evident that the floor at the top end of the church is gradually sinking, and it now lies at least 15cm below the original position. We have been advised that the sinking is accelerating, and in time this could lead to structural problems with the church building.Remedial work is due to start in January 2020 and is likely to cost more than £125,000. A program of local fundraising has already started, but will only cover a fraction of the cost; we have some savings which will be used, and we are applying for grants, but there will still be a shortfall.We hope with your help that the gap will be bridged. Thank you.
