All Saints' Church, Northampton is a church of English parish in the centre of Northampton. The current church was largely built after a fire and was consecrated in 1680. It is a Grade I listed building. Quinquennial stone, lead, rainwater goods and various sundry repairs were required. The works included a high  level cupola/dome repairs and both internal and external investigations. Various works were undertaken to this outstanding building including; Stonework's, lime plastering, leadworks, heritage joinery, leaded light restoration, classidur application, renewal of cast iron rainwater goods, painting, decorating and gilding to the gold detailing within the remarkable dome sub-section. The Beauty of this building and restoration works carried out by CEL Group (1989) Limited was profiled on the local news when ITV Anglia made a visit in March 2022 to televise the completed works. The BBC also published an article on their website with the same overview.  

"We have been immensely fortunate to engage with CEL Group (1989) Ltd, they came with a respected name and a track record of high-quality work. What they have accomplished here can only enhance their reputation. The challenge of working and conserving a Grade 1 listed building, while a busy and active worshipping community continued around them, was effortlessly executed. Moreover, we thoroughly enjoyed working with Phil, Paul and their highly professional team of builders and conservators. We were rather sorry when the project wrapped and the time came to wave them good-bye."
