**Wow - Thank you all so much!**

Your generosity has helped so much. Thank you all again!!!

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.

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. Extensive supportive A frames and tethering are required to support the roof at a significant extra cost. The ancient wood in the roof has been dendro-dated to the 15th century some of the trees were actually growing when Joan of Arc was fighting the English!

With the generous help of you crowdfunders we have managed to re-roof the whole church and the tower.

A MASSIVE THANK YOU!
