Quality assured Building, Joinery and Decoration since 1997

The White Hart Hotel

St Andrews

Very much at the heart of the village, this Grade 1 listed church faced a difficult future on the English heritage ‘at risk’ register. Amongst other features the church was renowned for its 15th century ceiling bosses. Character Builders undertook extensive works including the removal of internal re-plastering in the chancel, removal of cementitious render and re-roofing of the complete structure.

The job offered challenges in the form of keeping the building open during works and also the church location of a small village square. The job also saw us working with a range of bodies including English Heritage, Archeologists and conservation architect Jeremy Chadburn. Further to Character Builders work the building has now been removed from the ‘at risk’ register. Many slates were sponsored by members of the local community who engraved their names and in some cases poems, family details or dedications to others.
