The church roof of the Grade 1 listed church at St. Mary’s, Ruabon, has been replaced at a cost of £120,000 with the help of grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund (£55,500) and CADW (£48,000).
The project lasted from January to August 2010 with the work being carried out by Emerton Roofing (Western) Ltd of Nantwich under the supervision of architect, Graham Holland.
The vicar at the time, said, “The church at St. Mary’s is recognised as having many very special items of architectural interest and a very rare wall painting. The present roof has lasted 140 years so we expect to be watertight for several generations to come. We are grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund and CADW for making the work possible.”
