Extensive repairs to the roofs, high level masonry and rainwater goods were completed in early 2015, grant-aided by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England. Works to repair the west end roofs and masonry, grant-aided by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, were completed in 2017. Further roof repairs are required.
