Repairs to Grade I listed church
We led a project of repairs and renovation to this Grade I listed church in Preston.
We completed the quinquennial inspection report in 2007 and subsequently proceeded to lead a project to repair the aisle windows including, masonry repairs to all the significantly damaged stone components, renewing cast iron ferementes with stainless steel, repairing damaged stained glass panels and adding mesh protection panels.
St Walburge is a Grade I listed church built in 1853 with Preston's landmark spire completed in 1866.
Following our recommendations Design Lights (Stained Glass) Ltd prepared a specialist report on the condition of the stained glass and their detailed advice was subsequently incorporated into the repair contract documentation.
The three phases of work have so far repaired 16 windows.
