The celebration of the completion of the new roof for All Saints Church, Wytham.

,

All Saint's, WythamTHE congregation at All Saints’ Church Wytham is getting ready for a celebration after the completion of a five year £120,000 project for a new roof.

A £51,700 Heritage Lottery grant and money raised by the Friends of All Saints funded the new roof, after the old one was found to be in need of  repair back in January 2011. The most urgent work was carried out in March of that year, and the fundraising campaign was launched. Work began in August 2015 after the Bat Conservation Trust had monitored the bat colony in the roof and granted permission.

The new roof was completed in November 2015.  The work, which included the replacement of the chancel cross, which had long been missing, was carried out by local firm Woodstock Roofing.

Other charities that made donations were:

  • The Gladiator Trust
  • Bartlett Taylor Charitable Trust
  • Mr & Mrs J.A.Pye’s Charitable Settlement
  • Garfield Weston Foundation
  • Oxford Historic Churches Trust
