Halstead: Future of medieval church secured by restoration

The future of a historic medieval church has been secured after the completion of a long-term project to structurally restore it.

St Barnabas Church, in Alphamstone, was originally built in the 14th century and is a Grade One listed building.

Churchwarden Charles Dinwiddy said: “The main concern was that the church was shifting a little bit and while we were investigating that we discovered the roof needed repair.

“The work done has also managed to stop damp coming in."
