In partnership with Ron Sims Architect, a new altar, glazed internal porch, side screens and a new servery, complete with fittings and appliances, were made and installed by Treske for this historic church.
Fumed, limed and waxed oak was used and book trolleys and literature stands were also made.
Part of the commission was to make a secure tablet box for the display of the ancient Hartlepool stone with its runic inscription to a Saxon nun named Hildithryth, which was found in an Anglo-Saxon burial field in the Hartlepool peninsula in 1833.
St Hilda’s church, dating from around 1190, stands on the site of an earlier monastic site and dominates Hartlepool’s Headland skyline. Its collection of religious artifacts narrates a history of spiritual significance, retold through modern technologies in a church transformed into a fascinating attraction for all visitors.
To suit modern forms of worship the altar was placed further forward in the nave, approximately at the point from which the rood screen had been removed.
