Church extension, Hardingham

These new kitchen and toilet facilities make it easier for Hardingham Church in Norfolk to be used for concerts, meetings and educational visits as well as catering for the regular church congregation.

The flint, brick and stone extension makes use of an existing 19th century North door in the nave. The extension was designed to have minimal impact on the existing building and churchyard and makes use of a ‘trench arch’ drainage system where effluent is broken down aerobically below the surface of the soil. This option is low maintenance, economic to construct and well adapted to the erratic flows of a public building with irregular use.
