The church is a Grade II Listed Place of Worship, currently on the 'At Risk Register'. You will have a chance to explore this unique Georgian interior, wonder at what it would have been like in its hey-day, and weep at the 'heritage crimes' committed in the 1960s.
You will see it on the brink of its last phase of restoration (mainly the tower) which will lead in to the sympathetic development, restoration and re-decoration of the interior, which we hope will involve some 'architectural archaeology' in the restoration of colour-schemes, especially of the formerly polychromatic vault.
