‘A Stitch in Time – Guidance Notes in Maintaining your Place of Worship’
Guidance Note 3 – Rainwater Disposal
If you were to do nothing else to maintain your church building I strongly recommend that you inspect your gutters, rainwater heads and downpipes, as well as your underground drainage regularly and attain to any blockages or damage as a matter of urgency.
This guidance note only provides basic advice on what to look out for when reviewing your church rainwater disposal system. If you are in any doubt about the condition of your church fabric contact a well-respected heritage architect who has experience in dealing with church buildings to advise on a suitable course of action.
