B & E Boys are now on site undertaking the refurbishment of Grade 1 Listed latticed timber ceiling to the church nave. The Church will remain in use during the works and extreme care has had to be taken to protect the many detailled architectural features in the Church.
St Oswald’s Church is well know as the place where Oliver Cromwell rested his troops after the Battle of Redbank in 1648.
The chancel, sanctuary and vestry were rebuilt by Pugin in 1847–49, who also built the Palace of Westminster.
B & E Boys are no stranger to work on listed buildings having done refurbishment work and an extension to the Grade I listed building known as Townley Hall in Burnley, as well as their own St Mary’s Chambers in Rawtenstall which is now used as a first class Conference and Function Centre with rented office on upper floors.
Boys have a long history and experiance working with historic and architecturally important buildings, often undertaking work in public buildings as well as working hard to preserve the local industrial heritage in Rossendale.
