This conservation project saw PCA advise on the structural repairs and strengthening required to the historic timber roof structure and supporting stonework to accommodate a new slate roof covering.
St Julitta Church is a Grade I-listed church in the parish of Lanteglos-by-Camelford, Cornwall. Parts of the building date back to Norman times with features that include 15th century glass.
In spite of regular maintenance, the roof slates had been falling off through nail fatigue, the upper wall blocks were slipping, the aisle pillars were leaning, and damp was setting in. Historic England had assessed the condition of the building as ‘very poor and at risk of further rapid deterioration or loss of fabric’.
The new roof covering has gone some way to alleviating some of the issues identified by Historic England. PCA had already worked with Chadburn Conservation Architect back in 2019.
This project was shortlisted for the UK Church Architecture Awards in 2021.
