Church of the Good Shepherd, Thackery's Lane, Woodthorpe - Gedling

A significant modern concrete church designed on Liturgical Movement principles with stained glass windows by Patrick Reyntiens. The church is suffering severe concrete decay problems requiring urgent specialist attention to avoid loss of historic fabric. An extensive programme of grant-assisted repairs, jointly funded by Historic England and Heritage Lottery Fund, has successfully renewed complex roofing and ensured concrete facing panels are safe and weather tight. Further repairs needed to mullions and glazing.
