Parchmore is a particularly ornate Methodist Church built around 1900. By the time Kenyon was contracted to carry out extensive restoration work, the building had fallen into disrepair and already suffered extensive damage.
It was necessary first to alter and adapt the entire roof structure before effecting a complete roof renewal using a system devised by Axter Ltd.
The ornate stonework required careful remedial work and, in some areas,
partial or complete replacement. Of particular note was the specialist work undertaken to restore the intricate finials and stone carvings. Other masonry and stonework features were also fully restored and a comprehensive cleaning and decorating programme was undertaken.
While some of the old lead lined windows sitting within stone lined openings were less damaged and could be repaired, many needed replacing. Kenyon worked with experienced suppliers to ensure that these distinctive features were restored to a quality that matched the originals.
