The parishioners of All Saints Church were determined to return their Church to the heart of the community and make the building more useful to the residents of the village.
To achieve this, they needed to address the fact that the Church was a rather cold , dark building with areas of rotten floor boards and fixed pews.
Architect Michael Clews spent several years persuading the various authorities to agree to his bold plan of installing underfloor heating , a new stone floor, new lighting and new seating.
Sadly, Michael did not live long enough to see his plan come to fruition and the scheme was taken forward by David Spragg of Acanthus clews Architects Limited . Weldon Stone Enterprises Limited were awarded the contract having successfully won the tendering process.
The installation of the new floor was completed using foamed glass , limecrete , cork board , a lime screed and Ancaster Weatherbed limestone paving. This combination has provided a warm, breathable floor giving comfort and practicality.
Upon completion of the lighting and heating schemes, the plaster was repaired, new doorway installed, and the path re-configured to give disabled access.
