THE ROOF

We are not sure what type of roof the church had prior to the late 17th century but in the churchwarden accounts of 1678 tiles were purchased for the roof e.g.

[1678] Pd William Oath for six tousand and halfe of Tile Stones at 3s 6d by ye Tousand. £1 2s 9d
  pd for carriage of ye same £1 19s 0d
  pd John Buryman for Tyling ye church 3 weeks and 3 days £1 10s 0d
  pd to John Fursland for tending and working the stones 3 weeks and 3 days £1 6s 3d
  pd our boy 15 days work for making of mortar and carrying stones   13s 9d

 

The present roof is of slate with lead gulleys and flashing.
