Repairs to heritage buildings are often far from straightforward. In the case of St Aidan’s Church in Sudden, Rochdale the challenge was that the tower needed urgent repairs. The church itself is a Grade 2* building designed by Temple Moore.
As reported on Rochdale Online:
“The tower, which dates back to 1931, suffered from recent rain and snowfalls, with moisture building up on the upper level which froze in cold temperatures. The stone work was starting to split and was becoming dangerous, but a young photographer noticed there was something wrong and alerted church staff.”
Help was called and the repair team got straight to work to repair the damage, ensuring there was little risk to the safety of parishioners or any further damage to the tower. The repair team not only needed the skills necessary to repair the damage, but they had to be able to abseil down the exposed tower to access the damaged areas.
