Completed in November 2015 the Church of Ascension stands out as a heritage building worth preserving centrally located in the new Broughton Village. As a hub for many local groups and daily meeting place for Broughton folk it was necessary to bring the Church back to life and safeguard it from the Manchester weather with a new roof to the Chancel and Trancepts and traditional pointing with lime mortars from the eaves to the floor. It is surprising how refreshed the building looks with new mortar and the slating bands fashioned by hand are a triumph.

Summary

The work at the Church of Ascension consisted of a new roof to the Chancel and both trancepts plus repointing in heritage lime mortar from top to bottom.

“The completed contract is a good example of careful conservation work and I know the church members are very pleased indeed with the result. Well done.”
