Like many historical buildings, repairs to the fabric are needed from time to time. All Saints' roof has required urgent repair for some years, and after a previous attempt a proposal in 2016 to the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund resulted in a very welcome grant. The grant allowed the repair work to start in March 2017. Information on the timescale and possible impact on the local and church communities was posted on notice boards and communicated to local residents.
The first phase of the work, primarily on the South aisle roof, has now been completed (June 2017), with the second and last phase due to begin in September. This second phase, to make repairs to the roof above the chancel and the nave is now underway (late September). It is expected that the work will be completed by late November.
