St Mary’s at Quay Place
Sinclair Johnston & Partners are pleased to announce that St Mary’s at Quay Place in Ipswich, Suffolk has reopened its doors to the public. We were appointed by The Churches Conservation Trust for the renewal and repair works at this grade II* church which had been left redundant for over 100 years.
The church is built on marsh land and had suffered significant movement with massive concrete buttresses installed in 1960 to prop the south wall of the nave, which had developed significant outward distortion.
Phase 1 involved repairs to the existing but seriously decayed splendid hammer-beam roof and flint faced rubble stone walls. Phase 2 included sympathetic structural works to allow the removal of the unsightly concrete buttresses and insertion of a steel framed mezzanine to facilitate its new use by local charity – Suffolk Mind.
