Managed by Robin Potter on behalf of St Johns Saxmundham PCC and Churchwardens; we have replaced the slates on the Nave and Chancel roofs, replaced the lead roof over the South Aisle, carried out stonework repairs to the South side Clerestory windows, replaced the stone cross at the apex of the Nave roof and effected other high level repairs and restoration.
New guides and display boards have been produced to better inform the community and visitors of the history and heritage of this ancient building.
The total project cost was approximately £207k and the architect was Tim Buxbaum with principal contractor Universal Stone from Wickford, Essex. The funding was supported by a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and also Suffolk Historic Churches Trust. VAT for the repair work was refunded under the Government’s Listed Places of Worship grant scheme.
