Spooner Row church gets major repairs
Spooner Row’s 19th Century church has been the subject of “major repairs” totalling about £27,000.
Problems at the Holy Trinity, built in 1842, came to light during a recent quinquennial inspection undertaken by an experience architect. These included issues with the cross on the top of the east gable, with water corroding the metal fastenings, in turn splitting the stone.
Harry Gratton, the church’s treasurer, said: “Roof leaks can lead to all sorts of problems, so we are delighted that we were able to secure the funds so quickly.
“And the builders have done a super job. The roof should be good for a long time now.”
The work was made possible after receiving a grant from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund. It was carried out by Peter Barnes Builders, of Diss.
