Newland Tower Renovations

A project to repair the tower at All Saints Newland was completed in June 2017. The work  started in October 16 and finished in June 17, involved lots of raking out and re-pointing in lime mortar, the occasional replacement of badly eroded stone and the removal or vegetation that had grown into the mortar joints at high level.

The project cost in the region of £123,000 +VAT and was funded by a grant of £111,600 from The Heritage Lottery Fund and a number of smaller grants from
The Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust – £3,000
All Churches Trust – £2,300
Warnford Ecclesiastical Trust
The Langtree Trust – £750 – and a private donation. VAT will be claimed back under the Listed Places of Worship Scheme.

Below is a time-lapse video that will give you an idea of the work that was done on the tower. The galleries of pictures document the renovations. Please click on an image to see a larger version.
