Church of St Thomas the Apostle, Cowick Street, Exeter - Exeter

Church largely rebuilt in 1657. The west tower, south aisle and east end of north aisle are C17. Due to poor original design and lack of maintenance, roofs were in poor condition, rainwater goods failed and water penetrated parapet walls and gutters damaging the structure and decorative detail. A National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England Repair Grant for Places of Worship funded a first phase of repairs (2013). Further NHLF Grants for Places of Worship funded additional phases (2015 and 2017). Additional work to the aisle roof and interior of the body of the church is still needed.
