Church of St Mary, Mirfield

The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, Mirfield, is a fine Grade II* listed building from 1871, designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott.  Calls Architecture have coordinated a large fabric repair project under the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme, to rescue this magnificent Church.

The first phase of work at the Church has involved extensive masonry repairs to the tower, re-roofing, pinnacle repairs, new oak louvres and reinstatement of the missing colonnette. 

Associated works, have made use of the tower scaffold, including repairs to the clock and the refurbishment of the clock faces, along with the installation of bell lifting beams. The bells themselves have been re-tuned and some re-cast.

Internally, alterations within the side chapel have facilitated the display of the historic artefacts at the Church and included repairs to the oak Thornton memorial screen.

Our work at St Mary has covered the full range of architect’s services, including condition surveys, consents, schedules of repairs, specifications, a 10 year costed maintenance plan, options appraisals, detailed drawings, tendering, reporting and contract administration.
