Isleham's Self-built Church

This is an undergoing project in Isleham of a church being primarily built out of oak.

This is a local project where parishioners and other members of the local community have decided to re-build their church. It is being built from local green oak, half of which came from a nearby forest. The wood is felled, machined, processed and jointed before it is seasoned and dried. As it dries further it will add character due to cracks and twists appearing.

"It's a very traditional way of using wood and medieval houses were built this way," Mr Hedger said.
