We are inspecting architects for the grade II* listed Commissioners’ Church which dominates the skyline above the Pennine Village.
Repairs have been carried out to pinnacles displaced by storm damage.
A reorder of the west of the nave and the tower base have been carried out to provide improved wheelchair access, kitchen facilities and toilets in the church. This improves the facilities for the congregation, bell ringers and church volunteers.
This is a discrete intervention within the grade II* listed interior, already dominated by a 1970’s remodelling. The kitchen will enable the church to increase outreach by providing better facilities for community events and the local arts and music festivals and groups.
We are currently on site with a HLF funded project to reroof and repoint the tower.
Other proposals include the creation of car parking within the new graveyard and access improvements to the south porch.
