Church Roofs – Beauty, Bats and Building work

Suitable for: All with an interest in buildings and ecology
Notes: You will need to have access to Zoom. For further queries please contact Gareth Simpson, Project & Volunteer Manager, 02920 379483

Description:

Church roofs are very often more than just a way of keeping out the rain. They are a miracle of carpentry. Their construction over all periods is astonishing, spanning vast spaces using ingenious engineering solutions and displaying beautiful angels, hammer-beams and fan vaulting.

They are also home to bats and the Bats in Churches project is looking into mitigation methods and techniques in church roofs.

This session will look into how interesting church roofs can be and how we can protect bats and the church fabric, while carrying out roof repairs and bat mitigation.
