Works are progressing well at All Saints' Church in Fleet, we are currently erecting a new cross-laminated timber roof structure.
Built between 1861-1862 in neo-classical design by one of the greatest Victorian architects, William Burges the grade II* listed church was devastated following an arson attack in 2015 and lost 100% of its roof and much of the ornate interior. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-33266042
As well as the new CLT roof, our works involve re-building the church to include new environmentally efficient heating & lighting, restoration and cleaning of masonry, using artisans to restore the stained glass rose window.
The West Door which was part of William Burges original design will be restored, with a new entrance porch constructed to the west elevation accessed via a paved walkway from a newly formed vehicular lay-bay off Church Road, providing improved access for weddings and other important Church ceremonies
