St Mary’s, Nantwich

The west front of Grade I listed St Mary’s has been repaired under our direction and new access facilities are in place. A further scheme of fabric repairs and improvements is underway, including repair of historic choir stall canopies, entrance doors, rainwater goods, and finials. The PCC also asked the Practice to design new hospitality facilities. Following an options appraisal, the Church chose a space between the South Porch and South Transept as the most viable location for new facilities. We designed a modern 21st-century addition that does not deflect the eye from the glory of St Mary’s, and houses the church’s café and shop, with an additional separate entrance from the precinct.
