Launde Abbey celebrates complete overhaul by WW Brown & Sons

Launde Abbey celebrated the completion of WW Brown & Sons’ renovations by holding a special service of celebration this month.

Over 1,000 people attended the celebration, many of whom had campaigned to save the abbey from closure. Campaigners managed to raise £1m of the £2.6m needed to bring the abbey up to date.4893053

The Diocesan Retreat Centre was officially re-opened by Prince Charles on 25th January.

Commenting on the celebration, Reverend Tim Blewett, warden at Launde Abbey said:

“It was a fantastic celebration of the abundance of God and generosity of so many people who gave to the ‘Save Launde Appeal’.”

“Their generosity allowed the project of restoration and conservation of the Abbey to be undertaken in 2010.”

Mark Brown from WW Brown & Sons comments, “We were really happy to take on the Launde Abbey project – we’re always excited to take on the challenge of restoring period properties.”
