Appeal for St Uny Church, Lelant

Lelant     Churches

St Uny Church at Lelant is in need of urgent repair.

The Grade I listed building is located at the start of the St Michael's Way & is the only British start of Camino de Santiago - making it a historically significant building.

Parts of the building are now falling into disrepair and urgent work is required to restore it and transform it into a community hub, accessible to all.

The church tower roof is badly leaking and needs very urgent repair. Extensive damage has been caused to the bell frame and parts of the tiled floor are badly damaged and unsafe and the whole floor needs replacing.

The Church also currently has no disabled access, and bathroom facilities are located outside and a distance from the church itself. It is therefore necessary to create disabled access and proper facilities so that everyone is able to access and use the church.
