Demolition plan for Grantham church


A church in Grantham’s Earlesfield estate will be razed to the ground if a planning application is approved.

The Lincoln Diocesan Trust and Board of Finance has applied for planning permission to demolish the Church of the Epiphany, in The Grove.

The church was closed down by South Kesteven District Council in September 2011 due to health fears over asbestos in the building.

A ‘potential risk of exposure to asbestos fibres arising from the fabric of the building’ was the reason stated for the closure, as well as references to areas of ‘disrepair and deterioration’ inside the church.

At the time, the church’s congregation was asked to join St John’s Church in Spitalgate for services.
