A report by Historic England confirms that Grantham’s largest church, St Wulfram’s, is no longer a building ‘at risk’.

The church had to raise more than £600,000 to repair the spire, part of which was crumbling and needed urgent attention.

The report said: “Known as the ‘Glory of Grantham’, the Grade I listed Church of St Wulfram has been removed from the heritage at risk register this year.

“One of the grandest medieval parish churches in England, St Wulfram’s entered the register due to the condition of its spire.

“Thanks to a Heritage Lottery fund grant the repairs completed this year have ensured that one of the country’s tallest and most distinctive spires will survive for years to come.”

Ben Robinson, heritage at risk principal for the East Midlands, said: “The very things that make our regions special, are the things most at risk.

“If they’re lost, then a sense of that region is lost too. Together we can safeguard our most precious places and buildings for future generations.”
