St Keverne Parish Church new roof.
Richards and Rowe
St Keverne Church
St. Keverne Church, one of the finest Grade 1 Listed churches in the Truro Diocese had last
been re-roofed in 1890. The few, very long lead gutters were typically in large bays and had fractured causing it
The roof, following stripping, was found to be in excellent condition despite the water ingress, the gutters
were re-formed using new Code-6 lead in smaller bays introducing much steeper gutter slope and the roofs were
re-covered in Trevillet scantle slates which were properly wet bedded and secured to scantles with hardwood
It is certainly expected
that the new roof will last more than 100 years.
