All Saints Parish Church 2016 Roof Repairs Project
Great Chalfield attracts over 20,000 visitors each year all of whom are welcome to enjoy our beautiful parish church, where many find peace and serenity in this place of faith and prayer. In 2016 the Parochial Church Council of Great Chalfield were delighted to receive a grant of £23,600 towards roof repairs from the National Heritage Memorial Fund , Listed Places of Worship Roof Fund. This has enabled retiling and insulation of the Vestry roof built in 1775 and the east part of the Tropnell Chapel built c 1470, completing a cycle of roof repairs which started with the Nave in 1986. New tiles are in the valley and we reused old tiles on the garden side. Ken Biggs Contractors a local firm and our Architect Louise Bainbridge RIBA SCA have done an excellent job. Please come and enjoy our church in the year ahead.
All Saint’s Church takes its responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.
