St Mary Magdalene’s Church is included in the Statutory Register of Listed Buildings Listed Grade I for its historic and architectural importance and is located within Bolney Southern Conservation Area. Built in C11th in the local sandstone from the Weald. The large blocks of stone were laid in lime mortar the face of which had eroded over the centuries.
The objective of the project is to make the the tower wind, weather-tight and structurally secure for the next 60 years. Each face was fully scaffolded to aid hands-on inspection and repointing where needed to reinstate the weather capacity of the wall and remove water traps. West face was repaired in 2019 and South and East faces in 2021.
The Works were recorded in order to provide a permanent record of the parts.
