What is Project Newton?

What is Project Newton?

Our project involves urgent repairs to St Laurence Church, the only Grade 2* listed building in East Harptree.

At the same time we will improve inclusive access and create a heritage exhibition area.

We will also work to improve and enhance the churchyard as a natural habitat for wildlife. While achieving all this, the project will of course balance, and be sympathetic to, the principal purpose of the church as a place of worship.
