Heritage Conservation and Restoration recently completed a project of ours that involved extensive timber repairs to the roof structure of St Cuthbert’s Church in Kentmere, along with re-slating and replacement of the rainwater goods. The works to the grade 2 listed church were funded by the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund to a very strict time line and to exacting standards of quality. HCR were able to deliver the performance required and the entire team were a pleasure to work with throughout the site phase of the project. Their respect for the building, the surrounding rural area, the building users and local residents was exemplary. It is plain for all to see the very high level of craft skills the team possess which when allied with their understanding of heritage buildings and the need for sensitive working methods, makes HCR, in my opinion, one of the leading conservation specialists in the region. I would have no hesitation in working with them again, or for recommending them to others.
