Today, 28 January, and for the next 40 weeks, Ellis and Co will be on site at St John the Bapist Church, Glastonbury. We'll be completing repairs to the inside of the church, undertaking some significant reflooring works to repair subsidence and create stable level floors. We'll also be creating new internal lobbies to reduce drafts and installing heating, lighting and AV services, and a new kitchen to enable St John's to provide an improved quality of experience for its visitors. This is part of the HLF funded project Securing the Future.
St John's Church is a 15th Century Grade I listed church, set on the foundations on an earlier church, and widely restored in the 1850's by Sir George Gilbert Scott.
During the 2019 works the church will be closed but we will post more information on our social media sites over the next 10 months to show how the work is progressing.
