After 10 years of fundraising The Friends Of Lanteglos Church (FOLC) have gathered together enough funds and grants to start the restoration of St Julitta’s. Work started on 12th November and will continue for at least 9 months. BUT the recent opening up of the roof has revealed more ancient rotten timbers than expected and an extra £50,000 is required
We apologise that during the restoration there will be restricted access to the churchyard and no public access to the church
If access is required to graves inside the orange netting or if there are any problems that can’t be resolved on site with the contractor, please contact John Pearce on 07740421393.
The Bishop of St Germans said:
“I am delighted to see this ambitious project coming to fruition through a combination of local vision, faith, hard work and generosity. Now backed up and supported by the National Lottery. Not only will these works preserve a place of very special quality but they will make it even more accessible and usable for the wider community and all who find their way to this beautiful corner of Cornwall. When these works are completed I look forward once again to visiting this inspiring place of prayer and pilgrimage and encourage you to do the same.”
