ProjectsRestorations and Repairs supported by the Trust
The Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust supports the local Parochial Church Councils in the repair and restoration of their churches. Without the support of the Trust, which, since 1982, has contributed grants of over £1,000,000, these churches are at risk of falling into disrepair.
Work has started on repairs required under the Quinquennial report being repairing internal wall, plaster and mould and repainting plus work to exterior drainage and windows.
Placed on Heritage England’s “At Risk” register, the 550 year old west window has required complete restoration. Such a restoration is an unprecedented undertaking within the Diocese of Canterbury.
A project to restore eight, mainly 18th century, tombs in the churchyard at St Augustine’s, Brookland has begun. It is expected that the work will be completed by January 2018.
