Weardale Storms Threaten Historic Chapel

Fierce winds and torrential rain from Boxing Day throughout January 2016 have caused flooding to many houses in Weardale, Co Durham and ripped many  slates off HCT's Westgate Chapel, letting in rain. Our consultants recommend complete replacement as the only solution.  HCT has applied to the Church Roof Fund for help with this £70,000 project and we already have the support of many Supporters and some foundations.The Church Roof Fund is a one-off initiative established from fines levied by the Governement on banks for misbehaviour over LIBOR and Westgate Chapel seems to be exactly the kind of situation it was set up to help. HCT awaits a decision.
