St Peter and St Paul
St Peter and St Paul’s was built in the 13th century, though the chancel was rebuilt in the 19th century. One of its principle benefactors was Sir William de Berdewelle, who is depicted in a medieval stained glass window. The church has many fine features, including a painted hammerbeam roof of national significance over the lofty nave; an imposing tower with a spirette; a porch with fine flintwork and carved statues; the remains of medieval wall paintings; and two medieval stained glass windows. It sits at the heart of the village and Bardwell Conservation Area.
The project will tackle the repairs needed to conserve the church for future generations, so the local community and visitors can continue to enjoy the church and its heritage. Work to take place includes replacing cracked stone mullions around the medieval stained glass; cleaning, repairing, and conserving the stained glass; decaying stones around windows which are leaking; leaking slates on the porch roof making it waterproof and preventing water damage; and replacing and repairing other decaying masonry and flint work.
