This church suffered major structural damage when it was struck by a T3 tornado in August 2005. Extensive lead and stone masonry repairs over a period of six months were required to restore it to its former glory.

The repair work required 60 tons of sandcast lead sheet. The sheet was installed to modern LSA standards, in conjunction with the design requirements of Helen Weatheral of architects Marshall Sissons.

The specialist skills of both carpenters and stonemasons were required to repair the damage to the decorative stone buttresses and traditional oak beams. Their expertise ensured that, where possible, the original materials were conserved while restoring the church's structural safety.
