St. Michael and All Angels Repairs St. Michael and All Angels church is located in a small village in rural Herefordshire. The building dates back to the 12th Century and has been altered throughout its history. At the turn of the 20th Century, the famous church architect, WD Caroe, reformed the bell tower, installed new windows and pews.
In 2008 the church was closed to the public due to the roof structure becoming unstable, making the building no longer able to be used for house worship. RRA Architects were invited by Herefordshire Diocese to bid for a first round of repairs to make the building able to hold worship activities once again. Funded by a HLF grant, RRA’s conservation accredited architects made a full inspection of the building to investigate the failure of the historic fabric. Once this investigation was carried out RRA were able to draw up plans and specifications for a full schedule of repair.
The comprehensive repairs has been granted from the Chancellor of Hereford Diocese and the second application has recently been submitted HLF funding for the construction works.
