Victorian Chapel of Rest

The Victorian chapel of rests’s roof had come to the end of its life, and as there was no underfelt, the rain came in even during services. Canterbury City Council decided it needed to be re-slated with a natural slate, and look as original as possible. Secret lead gutters were renewed, also the red clay ridge tiles were reused. We ourselves were really pleased with the finished look.
