Historic England Grant – Faculty Application

Historic England has given St Peters a grant of £20,000 under a scheme to help buildings on the Heritage at Risk Register during the Covid19 crisis. This will allow us to make urgent repairs to the building to try to alleviate dampness causing deterioration to the fabric.

We have applied for a faculty (permission) to carry out these repairs which involve : –

Repairs to church roofs, masonry and rainwater disposal system to include:
Repairs to tile listings to nave roof, parapet copings to both north and south aisles; repairs to the copper roof of the north aisle; provision of new rainwater disposal soakaways; alterations and additions to the existing gutters and downpipes, re-pointing of masonry with selective replacement of decayed stone; timber repairs to choirstalls.

If you wish to object to these works, you should send an email or letter setting out the grounds for your objection to the Diocesan Registrar so as to reach him not later than March 31st 2021, Your letter should include your name and address and state whether you live in the parish and/or your name is entered on the church electoral roll of the parish or any other basis on which you have an interest in the matter. The letter should be sent or emailed to
