CoPAA is Launched

January 2017 sees the launch of CoPAA - the Conservation of the Priory Alabaster Arch project at the Priory Church of St. Mary, Tutbury.

The Alabaster Arch in the Grade 1 Listed St. Mary’s is the ONLY external Alabaster Arch in the country and the earliest example of Alabaster carving - it is therefore unique.

The environment is causing damage to the Alabaster that needs addressing urgently.

Consequently CoPAA, a £35,000 two year project, is being launched to preserve this unique piece of architecture in Tutbury’s most important public building.
