Elton Church

Elton Church

The building was due for major works to the nave and aisle roofs as well as to parts of the stonework of the tower.  A daylight assessment bat survey revealed that there were a small number of pipistrelle and brown long-eared bats using the church.  Further surveys including evening and dawn activity surveys and an Anabat remote detector were undertaken in 2012 in order to ascertain the access points the bats used and the level of activity.

Work began in March 2013 with a supervised removal of the slate roof and tower masonry.  Bat access slates are being installed within the new roof covering to enable the bats to gain access into the church.  The works will be completed before the bats return to the roost in the summer months.
