"UK£100,000 Will Help Us Save Our King"

At more than 800 years old, it is known as the King of Holderness. But St Augustine's Church in the heart of Hedon is slowly crumbling.

Now a grant from English Heritage has helped save the church - equivalent in size to four or five parish churches - from further deterioration. While restoration of the entire church is estimated at UK£4 million, work has been steadily completed in affordable phases.
