Plaxtol Parish Church
New internal works to the listed parish church at Plaxtol Kent were carried out to provide a toilet and kitchen within the west tower, as well as moving the font and pews to provide social area at the west end. The south trancept was also reordered to provide built in storage alongside the chapel. The church was built after the Civil War in Cromwell’s period with late C19 gothic extensions by Pearsall and the new works are designed to be clearly articulated as modern insertions, but with materials and details to harmonise with the existing interior. We developed the design with the PCC and provided exhibition boards and a simple model to help explain the proposals to the congregation. The works were completed in 2017 by Hare Builders.
