DURING THE RESTORATION THE MAJOR PART OF THE CHURCHYARD IS OPEN TO ALL. UNFORTUNATELY HEALTH AND SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS MEAN THAT THE ORANGE NETTING INDICATES WHERE PUBLIC ACCESS IS RESTRICTED.
IF YOU WISH TO PLACE FLOWERS ON A GRAVE IN THE RESTRICTED AREA, THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE WITH THE PERMISSION OF THE CONTRACTOR WHEN HE IS ON SITE OR AT YOUR OWN RISK WHEN HE IS NOT.
WE KNOW THAT ACCESS TO FAMILY GRAVES IS VERY IMPORTANT - ESPECIALLY AT THIS TIME OF YEAR AND WE HAVE DONE WHAT WE CAN TO MAKE THIS POSSIBLE.
THE SCAFFOLD BUILD HAS CAUSED SOME DISRUPTION, BUT THE WORST IS NOW OVER. WE WILL DO WHAT WE CAN TO MAKE GOOD ANY PROBLEMS CAUSED BY THE SCAFFOLD BUILD AND APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
ANY PROBLEMS SHOULD FIRST BE DISCUSSED WITH THE CONTRACTOR WHEN HE IS ON SITE. AT ALL OTHER TIMES PLEASE CONTACT JOHN PEARCE ON 07740421393
In order to facilitate access to the churchyard, the contractor has altered plans to have an container-office by the metal gates and has constructed an office inside the church. All the important heritage items in the church have been removed or in the case of the pulpit and the font - covered with protective wooden panels

This page aims to keep up with the progress of the restoration process and the ups and downs that there will inevitably be.
Although we have the majority of the necessary funds we are still short by approx £30,000 - so some compromise will have to be made unless we can find the extra. Can you help? Click here!
The scaffold company worked on the Methodist Church Restoration in Camelford and were praised for their excellent scaffold design. This is going to be needed here as the covered roof will have a very large span.
The scaffold won’t be up and finished until after Christmas
Some interesting artefacts have been found in the ancient roof space including a small painted wooden piece and decorative carved trefoil thought to be from a screen dating from the 14th or 15th century!
