Two Churches One Town gives green light for the phase 2 restoration of Minster nave roof
Skilled contractors have been given the go-ahead to start the restoration of the second half of Beverley Minster’s nave roof. Work is in progress to move scaffolding and equipment from the east end to the west end on site. Tim Carlisle, chair of Two Churches One Town, said, “This is great news for the Minster and the town of Beverley. Now we can start the process of finishing repairs to the west end of the nave roof that is leaking, causing damage to its timber structure. By starting this £1m project without delay we have been able to secure important savings using skilled workers, plant and equipment already on site. We will be providing employment to 20 skilled people working on the roof using four contractors. We could not have taken this step without the fantastic support of the Friends of Beverley Minster and Beverley Minster Old Fund“.
