This wonderful gothic church has undergone an extensive restoration process. A thoughtful contemporary extension has been created with the gable forms which link back to the original church. The post and lintels express an obvious symbology and reference to the church; old and new sit comfortably with each other, defining the distinctions of their intended uses. The new amenity has made this building a local landmark, and also highlights the importance of preservation and showcasing of our heritage places.
