All Saints Church, Grinshill, built from exceptionally soft local sandstone had suffered considerable weather erosion by the time a cement render was applied. It wasn't until Cbs removed this render that the full extent of the damage was revealed. As a result, the original specification to reface the masonry was abandoned and a new more extensive scheme introduced, encompassing the dismantling and rebuilding of the tower at high level, introducing replacement stone including window heads and sills.

In addition to the extensive masonry repairs, other works included: 

  • Replacement of slate hipped roof with new flat lead roof 
  • Decoration and gilding of the clock face 
  • Remove existing bell and reinstate on new oak bell chamber floor 
  • New ladder access
  • Restoration of glazing
  • New clock mechanism housing
