The church of St Giles began as a chapel of ease for Mells, a few miles distant. The Chapel was built in the 13th century, and was used only for Sunday mass celebrations. Parts of the south wall date to the original 13th Century church.
This project will see the addition of a new a kitchen and hospitality facilities with disabled toilet, to cater for a recently created 'community room' within the church building. Recent urgent repairs are also being undertaken as part of the overall renovation project. St Giles has been on the Heritage At Risk Register since 2014 and these works seek to remove the building from the Register.
