Congregational Church, St Leonards On Sea

 

We are currently working on a Conservation project which will be on going for some time, therefore this

page will be for you to see what we're doing as we go along.

 

The Congregational Church is considered one of the most ambitious Non-conformist buildings in Sussex. The church itself was founded in 1863 by James Griffin and  has been listed as a grade II building by English Heritage. Working on an historic building such as this, exactly matches Westoaks specialist skill sets and we have set about this project with great enthusiasm.

 

 

 

  This roof structure work shows use of reclaimed timber which when properly selected and fitted effects a quality repair more in keeping with the age of the building.

 

 

 The gable and aisle roof had completely collapsed and so we have carried out a full reconstruction on a like for like basis.

 

 

   Here we have a temporary door in place to the main rear entrance. We are constructing a replica of the door in joinery workshops together with re-instating the original surrounding framework.

 

 

   The Gargoyles on the tower have completely eroded in places and so we will be manufacturing replacements for them in matching quarried stone.
