The village church of Wendron dates back to the 13th century, but was mostly built in the 15th century. Its exterior is little altered since then and the church retains a medieval wagon roof and a 15th-century stone font. It was refurbished in the Victoria era.
The church is on Historic England’s Heritage At Risk Register because of the poor condition of the tower roof. Water has come through the roof, causing the timber below to degrade.
This project will replace large sections of the slate roof and repair rotten wood. Waterproofing features will be renewed, including faulty drains, gutters and leadwork. The works will contribute towards the removal of the Church of St Wendrona from the Heritage At Risk Register.
