Following a detailed survey, grade II listed All Saints Church in Exeter was found to be suffering from water ingress.  Le Page Architects and Carpenter Oak were entrusted to carry out vital repair and restoration works, rebuilding the spire to its original form.

The project took Carpenter Oak four days on site, with 190 items cut from twenty cubic metres of oak, including the cross.  The design also allowed for the continuation of a bat colony using areas of the roof, whilst also being unaffected by the work.

‘This timber frame church was a real pleasure to work on’ said Managing Director, Adam Milton.  ‘The Parish had waited many years for this work to begin and took a lot of pleasure seeing it go up.  Everything went really well on site, we had great weather and the team really enjoyed working on it.’
