Saintbury St. Nicholas' Roof Appeal

St Nicholas' Church, Saintbury, Gloucestershire

Rising above the North Cotswold escarpment and commanding views across three counties to the Malvern Hills and Welsh Mountains beyond, Saintbury’s 13th century spire is a much loved landmark. Behind it’s Arts & Crafts oak door is the enchanting legacy of centuries of worship & craftsmanship including work by Arts & Crafts colossi Gimson, Ashbee and Ashbee’s Guild disciple Alec Miller. 

Comprehensive theft of roof lead in 2017 has left the structure and its interior furnishings, including its important medieval wall paintings highly vulnerable.

We're raising funds towards restoring the roof as an urgent priority, and welcome all much-needed gifts, both as financial donations and as offers of practical help. We're extremely grateful to the Saintbury community for their work in hand to produce a series of public events, cleaning days, informative video, Heritage Open Days and tea parties, but without your help towards purchasing and installing replacement roofing Saintbury's precious and delicate fabric will remain at risk.

Thank you then very much indeed for considering a gift to the Saintbury appeal, and for reviewing any and all opportunities to get involved - please do check our Saintbury St. Nicholas' main page for details of events where you can meet the team.

You can also read about more about our appeal and about walks to Broadway and to Chipping Campden in the Saintbury Appeal Committee leaflet.
