Church of St Cuthbert, Market Place, Darlington - Darlington (UA)

St Cuthbert's is one of the most important churches in the Early English style of Gothic architecture in the north of England. The nave, transepts and chancel are housed beneath steeply pitched roofs whose covering is affected by significant problems. The building is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain in a weathertight condition. A first phase of roof repairs was undertaken in 2016 and a second phase is due to be completed in 2018. Both phases have been made possible with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme.
