A new lease of life for the Baptist Church, Winchester.

Gordon Lockhart, the church secretary, said: “For a number of years we have been battling with damp and made the decision in 2018 to rectify this issue. We appointed local architects Seymour Bainbridge to prepare the necessary documentation and in March 2019 commissioned RV Dart and Son Builders of Romsey to undertake the works for us. “The work involved removing all the old render, allowing the elevation to dry out before new render was applied and decorated. As with any work to old buildings, there were surprises along the way such as finding there was very little structural support to the balcony.”   [Reported in The Hampshire Chronicle]
