RESTORATION & REORDERING OF ST PETER & ST PAUL'S CHURCH
BLANDFORD FORUM

THE REALITY - 1 2 3

Blandford Cupola Project rotten timbers

The problems the building is facing are deep rooted and relate to a period of neglect lasting over many decades.

Unseen, gulleys in the roof collected water which - instead of draining away - seeped into the walls.

The church was built from soft Wiltshire green sand stone which has allowed water to penetrate the walls.

Urgent repairs are needed:

  • To make the roof weather-tight
  • To stop further deterioration of the dressed stone and repair the external fabric of the building.
