Project Number: 390641.007
Objective: To build a replacement porch and main entrance
Project Completion Date: March 2017
Contributing Landfill Operator: Swansea City Waste Disposal Company
LCF Funding: £80000
Project Partners: All Saints PCC
All Saints’ church is situated on the outskirts of Swansea West, in the small village of Mumbles, on the Gower Peninsula. It was during the Norman occupation of Gower that the original medieval church was built and the tower (Norman construction) dates from the early 13th century. The medieval church has been extended over the years, most notably in 1860 and then finally, between the years of 1915 and 1937. The building is steeped in history but the rapidly declining state of the main fabric is putting its heritage at risk whilst hindering the work and ministry of this vibrant church. The building is in almost constant use and with an annual footfall of 33000 it is a major venue for concerts, exhibitions and events.
This project has provided a new (replacement) west porch including a kitchen and toilet facility, as part of a major restoration project. The new porch is constructed to modern-day standards whilst maintaining the church’s original character, to protect the built environment.
