Help to Save Baydon St. Nicholas Church

Our beautiful 12th Century church is facing a major crisis, threatening its very existence.  Intensive scaffolding is now in place to brace the North and East Chancel walls.  Imminent collapse threatens many architectural and historic features including the wonderful stained glass windows.

We are pleading for your help to save our Church.  For more information please contact the Whitton Team Office

Update May 2019: The chancel wall project is on-going so the focus is currently on completing the North Aisle.

We have approached the scaffolders to see if we can purchase the scaffolding instead of paying £108 + VAT per week. 

We have sent an Informal report to the Diocesan Advisory Committee regarding changing the roofing material from lead to stainless steel. We have applied to Wiltshire Council for Planning permission to replace the roofing material with stainless steel.  If the Diocesan Advisory Committee insists on lead, then we will have to re-submit our application for planning permission for lead and pay the additional fee, but we are hoping that we will save time by putting the request in now.

Our architect has drawn up provisional plans and written a very succinct report but we are waiting for our Insurers to put in a (hopefully) positive report for the change to stainless steel.

We are still receiving a great deal of support from the Whitton Team of churches – physically and financially. Without their help we would be in a very awkward place!  

Our Community Open Garden event on 6 July is clearly showing how kind and supportive the people of Baydon are, with many organisations and individuals offering their help. A huge thank you to them all.
