HLF Places of Worship Grant schemes
These grants provide funding to assist parishes to carry out essential repairs to protect the historic fabric of these buildings. Completed schemes include repairs to tracery windows to St Mary's Cathedral, Newcastle, rebuilding stone external steps to St Patrick's, Felling, re-roofing St Bede's, Jarrow.
Current schemes expected on site during 2016 include roof and stonework repairs to St Mary St Stephen in Wolsingham, re-roofing St Aloysius in Hebburn and roof repairs to St Michael's in Elswick. All HLF projects of this nature require an architect accredited in building conservation.
