|St. Gregory’s Minster||Kirkdale||Restoration & Install team (Yorkshire & West Division)||2015||£11K|
With over 30 years’ experience in repairing and replacing timber windows of listed and heritage buildings, you could say working on old buildings was in our blood at IWP Dansk.
We work closely with conservation officers, architects, specifiers and local authority planning departments on behalf of the client and as part of our ongoing commitment to partnering with main contractors, we are delivering another project with William Anelay of York.
We delivered some small project refurbishment to St Gregory’s Minster, in Kirkdale, in North Yorkshire this year.
Built in 1060 on the site of an earlier church, this grade I listed Minster is one of the oldest buildings we have worked on. The church is steeped in history and is dedicated to St Gregory who was pope in 590–604.
We are proud to be working on this Anglo-Saxon church – which has a rare sundial above the south door, hidden within the porch. It is well preserved owing to it having been covered by a coating of plaster for several centuries prior to 1771 and to the subsequent protection from the porch.
Our team has a unique understanding of the specific needs of such properties and really enjoyed working on this historic building.
