THE £220,000 restoration of a distinctive church in Somerset is nearly complete.

THE £220,000 restoration of a distinctive church in Somerset is nearly complete.

The unusual octagonal building of the Holy Trinity Church in Blackford is one of few Georgian chapels in Somerset.

The 1823 Grade II listed building was given £120,000 by English Heritage last year to help with an extensive roof repair and general revamp.

Reverend Richard Neill said: "We were fortunate to get the grant and we are looking forward to the completion next month."

Work was due to be finished before Christmas but poor weather caused a delay.

To celebrate the completion of the church a scroll will be placed inside the roof containing details of the restoration.
