The conservation and repair of historic and ancient church buildings, cathedrals and other places of worship is where Recclesia started its journey and is at the heart of our business.
Our key in-house traditional skills of stone masonry, stained glass, metalwork and joinery are a reflection of the disciplines required to provide a holistic service for some of our nation’s most outstanding places of worship.
At the heart of the historic market town of Nantwich, Cheshire, St Mary’s Church has stood as a beacon for over 800 years. Since its principal construction, between 1280 and 1390, the Grade I listed church has seen numerous phases of building works and additions. The latest phase of works has provided much needed reordering with the insertion of new facilities encapsulated by a new considerate and contemporary entrance screen designed by Donald Insall Associates.
Following identification of severe weathering and delamination of the masonry to the East Window by conservation architect Lesley Lloyd of Tenbury Wells, Recclesia were awarded the contract to carry out the conservation and restoration work to the stonework, the stained glass window and the wrought iron ferramenta.
