St Helen’s Church, Churchtown


We are inspecting architects for the grade I listed church in the Diocese of Blackburn. The church dates from the C12,with phases of building in most centuries and many styles.


We carried out a quinquennial inspection in 2012. At the time of the inspection roof problems were known, with the concern that water ingress may affect historic wall paintings.


A series of works were carried out in 2012 to stabilise masonry to walls and parapets and to renew valley gutters throughout the building. These works were in part funded by a grant from the Wolfson Foundation.


We have since carried out various other works to the church, including the repair of rainwater goods and the renewal and repair of external doors.
