Lanteglos is a Grade I listed building & dates back to Norman times and is in desperate need of restoration but funds are short.

St Julitta's is a Grade I Listed medieval Cornish church in the Parish of Lanteglos by Camelford. Parts of the building date back to Norman times and there are a number of important heritage features such as 15th century glass; rare use of an ancient symbol and a National Scheduled Monument in the churchyard. The Church has been in need of restoration for some time now.

After 10 years of fundraising The Friends Of Lanteglos Church (FOLC) have gathered together enough funds and grants to start the restoration of St Julitta’s and work started on 12th November and will continue for at least 9 months.

Unfortunately the roof timbers have been found to be in much worse condition than what was originally thought during the opening up inspection. The medieval oak rafters are so rotten in places that they have disappeared although the wood that remains is as hard as rock. The Victorian restoration 150 years ago used rather light weight pinewood and extensive supportive A frames and tethering are required at a significant extra cost. The ancient wood in the roof is due to be dendron dated to check exactly how old the rafters are

Sadly the extra cost of strengthening the roof of the whole building is £50,000. 

The Crowdfunding page is set up to help raise £2,000 to towards the cost of the project.

Please donate so work can continue to complete the restoration project.
