Maintenance videos


Five new videos produced by the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB) in association with Historic England and the National Churches Trust, provide guidance on how to maintain and protect places of worship, including advice on church roofs and rainwater goods. They are designed to be used in conjunction with the Maintenance Checklist for Places of Worship, an easy-to-follow template that helps wardens and other volunteers monitor their building. Please find the videos on their website here.

The series includes:

  • How to maintain church exteriors
  • How to maintain church roofs
  • How to maintain church rainwater goods
  • How to maintain church interiors
  • How to maintain church building services
