The Conservation Team are fortunate to act as Church Architect to a large number of Parish Churches of varying scale, many Listed Grade I or II *. Our work includes Quinquennial Inspections, conservation repair work, feasibility studies, re-ordering and new facilities. We also have significant expertise in repair grants, ecclesiastical exemption and faculty jurisdiction.
Our Conservation Team are represented on the Approved Architects for the Diocesan Advisory Committees of Oxford, Peterborough, Oxford, Coventry, Leicester, Birmingham, London, St Albans and Derby as well as being members of the Cathedral Architects Association and EASA. It is a condition of English Heritage grant-funded projects that only RIBA/AABC accredited architects work on these projects. Acanthus Clews has three such accredited architects.
We have ben fortunate to receive a number of awards for our Ecclesiastical work including the SPAB John Betjeman Memorial Award for the repairs to St Mary's Church, Bloxham and the RIBA South Conservation Award for the reordering and extension of St Thomas of Cantebury Church, Goring On Thames.
