The Church

Dunston is one of only six churches in the country dedicated to St Remigius, either a French Saint from Rheims, or possibly a Remigius who was the first Bishop of Lincoln.

One of the most striking features of this tiny church is the alabaster carving around the east window. There is also some medieval glass featuring St Remigius and a carved 15th rood screen.

The church has no power or running water so is rarely used at the moment, but we hope that working with the project will mean that it can become a more regular host for services and events.

The Bats

Despite only being home to a small number of Brown Long-eared Bats, this tiny church suffers heavily from droppings and urine.

We plan to create roost space in the tower and bell chamber and enclose the current roost in the wall top void. This will prevent bats accessing the interior of the church and prevent any further damage.
