Background

All Saints' church Wickhambrook is a Grade I listed building. In the Quinquennial inspection report 2000 it was assessed that the building required £292,700 of work to be undertaken to return it to its former glory. A description of some of the work required along with a series of supporting-evidence pictures is depicted in the following table.
