Alby St Ethelbert


ST ETHELBERT’S, ALBY – safeguarding Alby’s church:  £218,500 grant
St Ethelbert's is a Grade II* listed church whicvh was in urgent need of repairs to its roof. An earlier Heritage Lottery Fund grant revealed that the nave roof was in a worse condition than first thought. This new grant has ensured timbers have been repaired or replaced and stainless steel used to strengthen the roof structure, with new oak rafters inserted above the existing rafters to strengthen them. A new guidebook, leaflet and website about the history of St Ethelbert’s, including research by local schools, is being explored.

The reopening of Alby Church will take place at 4pm on September 4th by the Bishop of Lynn.
