Project: St. Michael & All Angels Church, Hathersage Restoration

It has been a while since we did an update on Hathersage Church. The new Havwoods suspended timber floor construction is complete and the oak boarded flooring is going down. The heating trenches are completed with the new finned radiators within them and the radiators elsewhere are now installed. The heating will hopefully be turned on this week!

The new bespoke floor tiles have been manufactured by Craven Dunnill Jackfield Ltd. in Ironbridge and have been delivered to site for the restoration of the William Butterfield tiled floor to the Sanctuary; this will begin next week.

The new cast iron floor grilles have been delivered and laid and look superb next to the oak flooring. Once the tiling has been cleaned up, it will look a treat! The existing column bases have been left exposed so that you can see the historic bases below the oak floor.

Most notably, the lighting installation, designed by Tom Crooks Architecture Ltd., using fittings from Concord and Collingwood, has almost been completed! New high level lighting throughout has made a huge difference to the feel of the interior of the Church. Features that were once in darkness are now bathed in light, allowing us to bring out the best of this fabulous Grade I Listed building. The lighting will be finished this week and the RAKO control system commissioned over the next couple of weeks.

The pews have been modified and will be returning to site shortly, along with the new oak bookstall (made from an old pew), a new oak ramp and the new chairs to the two Aisles.

Exciting times as the church now plans for its re-opening in June. Keep up to date with the re-opening service and events here.
