Inglesham: Urgent Roof Repair Appeal

Church of St John the Baptist, Inglesham, Wiltshire

We are sad to announce that on Tuesday 11th April we discovered that the lead roof covering had been stolen from Inglesham church. This puts at risk the church's internationally important collection of wallpaintings saved by William Morris in the late 1800s.

A temporary roof covering was put in place within 24 hours of discovery to try to prevent water ingress damaging the wallpaintings and an alarm system is being fitted. 

We will now work with local volunteers and supporters of the church to raise funds to provide a permanent covering to safeguard the future of this much loved and historically significant church. It is estimated that £60,000 will need to be raised.
