The Conservation of the Porch of the Priory Church of St Mary


In July 2007, Pilton was set the task of raising £40,000 to stop its beautiful 13th Century Priory Church closing. Why? Because the Church’s insurers threatened withdrawal of public liability cover if repairs to the 15th Century entrance porch were not made. A five-year survey of the building had highlighted urgently needed major work on the structure. Rector of Barnstaple, the Rev Vernon Ross said, “Our insurers said we needed to do something urgently or they would withdraw cover.” The Church was given just six months to raise the money and this document tells the story.
