The Church of St Botolph’s in the Lincolnshire village of Saxilby is grade I listed with 12th Century origins and is home to the Daubeny tomb of 1370.
Our works included the high level masonry consolidation and repointing works to the tower and nave parapet walls as well as low level areas of masonry affected by the migration of salts within the building.
Interestingly our works also involved the introduction of a glass roof hatch with hydraulic arms to aide its operability and allow easier inspection and maintenance of the tower roof. The existing roof access hatch, made from timber boards and clad in lead was very heavy and hindered maintenance access of the tower roof. This was carefully removed and set aside for salvage by the church.
