Situated in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Beauty, St Faith’s, a Grade I listed building, is a larger than average village church seating up to 200 people.
Parts of the building date from the 11th Century. In 1040, a massive double row of stone columns was erected. The Normans also installed a font with carved stone panels. In the 14th Century, the north and south aisles were added, the nave roof was raised and the south doorway, with Norman mouldings and arch, moved to its present position.
The project will support the installation of a universally accessible toilet and washbasin in the North West corner of the church near to an existing vestry.
Top tips from completed project feedback:
Get the DAC involved from the outset - the Worcester DAC was immensely helpful in paying pre-faculty visits and had really good suggestions.
Make sure you have really good people to do the actual work - our Church Architect was a fund of useful contacts
