Keeping Wells Weathertight

Its beautiful fan vaulting makes the ceiling of Wells Cathedral one of the most famous in the world...

...but heavy rain in 2016 caused lead sheets on the nave roof to slip exposing the original medieval roof timbers and stone ribs beneath. Ensuring the Cathedral is weathertight is a top priority for the team at Wells.  

"Wells Cathedral is enormously grateful for a £10,000 grant from Allchurches Trust that will allow us to continue our care for this glorious building." The Very Revd Dr John Davies, Dean of Wells.
