Contract Duration:

4 Months



Date of Completion:

August 2022

The Church of St Michael is of great interest in the Stowe Nine Churches Parish, not only for the Grade I listing, but for its Saxon design.  St Michael's was built on a Neolithic worship site which is very rare in the county of Northamptonshire. We utilised our in-house traditional lime plasterer to carry out a vast array of render installation throughout the Grade I listed building. Following the initial works, at the client's request, various leadworks were undertaken to repair the South Aisle and betterment work to the tower's lead cills.
