Why is the church closed to visitors?
St Andrew's is one of the most acute of all the conservation challenges faced by the Friends. The church has been moving for a century or more and it was this coupled with its remoteness which led to its abandonment thirty years ago. We have repaired the exterior since then and have been monitoring the internal movement before resorting to a full scale programme of conservation.
We have applied to English Heritage for grant aid but have a lot more to do to ensure this church is repaired and restored for future generations.
