All Saints, Snetterton, one of the Trust’s Leased Churches is currently closed for major structural repairs to the church and tower, funded by a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant. In March 2019, while the scaffolding is still in place, over thirty people from the local community as well as Friends of the Trust have had the opportunity to look at the repairs and the view from the tower. A local sixth form student was so inspired by his experience that he has taken up a degree apprenticeship with a major regional building firm with a view to pursuing a career in built heritage conservation. They were able to see the work progressing and learn more about the process of repairs to a medieval church. The photographs show the view they had of the surrounding countryside and one of the stone water spouts, which is in the shape of a dog – so relevant to the 21st Century with the Dogs’ Trust being situated in the village!
