Norfolk Church Supported By Prince Charles Awarded Grant For Major Roof Repairs

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - Jan. 27, 2012) - A church located in the East of England which has royal support has been granted thousands of pounds from the National Churches Trust for vital roof repairs. The Church of St Peter, in Walpole, Norfolk, has been awarded a £20,000 grant to help towards hiring roofing contractors for necessary repairs to its roof which will ensure its doors stay open for generations to come.

The Grade I listed church, which was built in the 14th century, has received support by Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, who has visited the building on a regular basis and contributed to its repair.

Claire Walker, the chief executive of the National Churches Trust (NCT), said the church is a shining example of one of the best of the nation's heritage. She said: "I am delighted the trust has been able to support these vital repairs to one of England's most important parish churches."

Otherwise called Queen of the Marshlands, the church is reported by The BBC as having a big roof which is very high to reach so hiring local roofers to commence the restoration is an expensive process. Half of the funding will derive from English Heritage and £50,000 will originate from donations.
