St. Barnabas Church, Heapey

Lyons Stonework, were approached to repair and restore the Rose window in the parish church of St Barnabas, Heapey.

The church of St. Barnabas was first built in 1552, rebuilt in 1740 and enlarged in 1829 and 1867 and restored in 1876 and 1898. The church consists of chancel, nave and transepts and is a Grade II Listed building.

Work of this sensitive nature is carried out onsite and in our banker shop.  Once a stone match to the original stone and templates have been acquired, our skilled banker masons work to sympathetically recreate the original window and restore it to its former beauty.

The property was significantly extended, and we ensured that the correct stone and architectural masonry was employed.

Details of Work Included:

  • Completion of new inset into the rose window.
  • Scheduling and templating for masonry to complete the inner part of the window.
  • Production of new masonry.
  • Feature carvings within the window masonry.
  • Sympathetic Repairs to original building
  • Lime pointing and repairs to surrounding stone masonry.
  • Steel dowelling to hold the inner rose into place.
