St Matthew's Church, Little Lever

The Church is a Grade II listed building and the whole roof was placed on the Historic England at risk register.  The lead is original but the slates were letting in water after years of neglect. Funding for the tower and transept repairs was requested by the Parish.  The need for the repairs is to make the Church watertight and to prevent internal damage to fixtures and fittings notably the Brindley and Foster organ.  The work to the tower and the re-roofing of the south transept has now been completed.  This is a large church building with further work to be considered.
