Beeston Regis church gets funding boost
Desperately needed repairs to All Saints Church in Beeston Regis can now go ahead thanks to grants from a government culture recovery fund and from Norfolk Churches Trust.
The landmark medieval church stands a few hundred yards from the clifftop between Sheringham and West Runton in North Norfolk. The essential work to roof, parapets and rainwater gutters was identified at a routine inspection four and a half years ago but the repair work has been put off for years due to a lack of funds.
The £22,000 culture recovery grant will cover the bulk of the repair bill and will be supplemented by a smaller grant of £1,500 from the Norfolk Churches Trust.
The church is one of 162 historic places across the country benefiting from the government fund - from Durham Cathedral to the dinosaur sculptures at Crystal Palace Park in Bromley.
Martin Braybrook, treasurer of Beeston Regis parochial church council, said he was delighted the project could now proceed.
