From Our Website

The restoration of the tiling to the Chancel roof at Barham Church near Ipswich, as can be seen from the photo's the tiles are a mixture of fish scale, bull nose and plain tiles, the replacement tiles were hand cut to match the existing tiles. Unfortunately we have no photo's the roof prior to stripping, as these works were carried out by other contractors. However, around 50% of new handmade tiles were used mixed with the existing and re-laid.
