John Beauchamp has been appointed church architect for seven churches in Devon cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust. These include St Michael & All Angels, Princetown, Dartmoor. This simple, slender-towered Dartmoor church was built between 1812-14 by prisoners of war held at Dartmoor prison. Cherry and Pevsner describe the location on Dartmoor as ‘unquestionably the bleakest place in Devon‘. It is 436 metres above sea level and exposed to high winds and twice the national average rain fall.
John has also recently been appointed Church Architect for Clifton, Christ Church and Wells, St Cuthbert amongst other churches throughout the South West.
Marcus Chantrey has been appointed to Kinsgbury Episcopi, Hambridge and East Lambrook within the Bath and Wells Diocese.
b2 have also helped Stephen Patten and Andrew Faulkner secure appointments for churches in the Bristol and Bath and Wells Diocese.
