Saint Agnes and Saint Pancras,
Since the year 2000 a great deal has been achieved. Funding was
secured from the English Heritage - Lottery Fund for major
restoration work on the church.
Phase 1 was completed in 2003, and incorporated the re-roofing of
the East end of the church and urgent high-level repairs to the
spires and fleche. At the same time the whole of the electrical and
lighting circuitry was renewed.
Phase 2 commenced in 2006 and was completed in the spring of 2007.
This involved the complete re-roofing of the northern half of the
church, where there was already very serious water ingress, badly
eroding some of the internal stonework. Guttering and down pipes
were also repaired.
We are currently renovating the church hall.
In the course of the first half of 2007, the kitchen was reduced in size
and completely modernised. This gave us increased space to expand the
provision of lavatories, enabling us to have separate male and female
lavatories, as well as a cubicle for the disabled. At the same time,
partitions have been put up at the far end of the hall, giving us two
good-sized storage rooms. Still remaining to be done is the eradication
of the damp areas in the long North wall of the hall and general
Phases 3 and 4 of the church restoration remain to
be carried out. Phase 3 encompasses the re-roofing of the South side of
the church, and phase 4 involves the replacement of eroded stonework
throughout the interior of the church. Rather more urgent at this stage
is the repairing of the tiled floor in the church in various places
where the tiles are cracked and have risen. There remains much work to
