St Paul’s, Astley Bridge

Heritage Conservation Restoration Ltd carried out the re-roofing of the Chancel at St Paul’s Church in Astley Bridge. The original slates were in poor condition and were replaced with new Capital Welsh Blue slate to ensure all repairs were in keeping with the look of the roof prior to the work commencing. The project also involved creating new weired outlets to the Vestry and nave roofs to improve the drainage of the parapet gutters.

Once the project commenced and the scaffold was erected, Heritage reviewed the condition of the roof and found that not all of the work originally specified was actually required. We worked with the architects and both concluded this was the case, thus saving money on this area of the project.

St Paul’s could then reallocate the budgets to other repairs that were noted on their quinquennial report for which they didn’t initially have the funds. Masonry and repointing works were then carried out to the North and South parapet walls, plus a partial rebuild of the chimney to the East end and indent repairs to the Aisle windows. Much needed expansion ‘T-pren’ joints were also installed to the North and South lead gutters as the original bays were too long for the thickness of lead and splits were starting to occur.

The church was delighted to get the additional work completed as part of the project, subsequently allowing them to focus on raising funds for other areas which needed attention, without worrying about the remedial repairs we were able to complete.
