William Anelay repairs grade 1 listed St Augustine's Church

William Anelay Ltd has announced it has completed the latest phase of work at the grade 1 listed St. Augustine’s Church in Hedon near Hull.

The contract involved repairs and replacements to some of the building’s structural masonry, much of it dating back eight hundred years, as well as the sensitive introduction of newly carved masonry pieces produced at Anelay’s stoneyard in York.

One of the building’s grotesques was severely eroded and so a replacement was designed and then produced drawing on knowledge from the Decorated Gothic Ecclesiastical period and using existing carvings as a point of reference. The project lasted 10 weeks and was concluded in time for the Christmas festivities.

Established in 1747, William Anelay Ltd is one of the oldest companies in the UK and currently operates out of bases in York and Manchester with around 90 staff and an annual turnover in 2009 of £17 million. They are one of the UK’s few dedicated building restoration firms and have worked on many prestigious commercial and private residential projects across the British Isles and Europe.
