All Saints Church re-opens


Following an arson attack in 2015 that severely damaged All Saints Church in Fleet, we are delighted to announce the reopening of the church.


On Sunday, Buxton attended a re-consecration service with Rt Revd Andrew Watson, Bishop of Guildford. The bishop blessed the church and declared it a place of worship and community. He also spoke about preserving our cultural heritage.



The Grade II* listed church was left with an estimated £4.5m worth of damage after the fire, losing 100% of its roof and much of the ornate interior. Our team worked tirelessly to reconstruct the church, including constructing a Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) roof and installing new environmentally efficient heating and lighting. The masonry was also restored and cleaned, and our team worked with skilled artisans to restore the stained glass rose window to its original beauty.


As part of the restoration process, the West Door, which was part of William Burges' original design, has been restored. In addition, an entrance porch has been constructed on the west elevation, accessed via a newly formed vehicular lay-bay off Church Road, providing improved access for weddings and other significant Church ceremonies.


We are proud to have played a role in All Saints Church restoration. We believe that buildings like this are a significant part of our cultural heritage, and we are committed to preserving them for future generations.
