600 Year Old Church Restored To Its Former Glory

St Peter's, Long Bredy

8:09am 15th October 2013

A 600 year old church has been restored to it's former glory thanks to a sizable grant from the Dorset Historic Churches Trust.

£40,000 was needed to fix the tower at St Peter's Church in Long Bredy - and the grant contributed to nearly £10,000 of it's funding.

Other local organisations also donated along with local fundraising to help fix the church.

The entire project took four months to finish the work on the 15th century building over the summer months.

The tower was in such a poor state that it had become dangerous for those wanting to visit the church's graveyard.

Ray Winter, from St Peter's PCC, said: " We are very grateful for the donation from Dorset Historic Churches Trust and from the fundraising activities from local parishioners."

"The repair work to the tower has been needed for many years, so we are very relived that it has now been completed and visitors to the church can once again enjoy the magnificent tower restored to its full glory."
