Awarded a grant to help fund a project to re-roof the nave and aisles, and to repair roof timbers, parapets, gutters and flashing.
Nestled in the quiet North Yorkshire village of Bolton Percy, All Saints is an old church with a long history and a big heart. Set in a peaceful, tranquil churchyard All Saints' was erected in the 15th century on the site of an earlier church and consecrated in 1424.
Notable features within the church include: a Jacobean pulpit and oak box pews; a font that originates from Norman times with and a Jacobean cover; numerous monuments around the walls and set into the floor notably commemorating the Fairfax family, prominent members of the nobility in the 17th and 18th centuries. Visitors come from far and wide to view the church’s fourteen stunning stained glass windows. All are beautiful works of art in themselves but the East Window and the Millennium Window attract the most attention.
The project will include recovering the roof over the nave, aisles, and tower together with repairs to roof timbers parapet gutters and flashings and structural oak timbers. The work will protect the interior of the building from damage by the elements and therefore preserve the many historic features including monuments, furniture and the stained glass windows.
