Abate called in to save historic medieval Suffolk church

Abate church bell

When it was found that Kettleburgh church had birds in the belfry rather than the usual bats, BPCA member company Abate was called in to prevent further catastrophic damage to the bells and building.   

The Grade 1 listed, medieval Suffolk church, had been under attack by birds which had been able to gain access to the belfry.

The bells and church building itself had suffered damage from the acidic bird droppings and left unattended would have resulted in major damage to both.

Jon Blake, MD of Abate Pest Management Services explained:

The church was suffering from the effects of birds gaining access to the belfry. They had made a considerable mess and something needed to be done to protect the building and the bells. We were called in to clear the affected areas and prevent birds getting in again. We carried out a professional assessment of the belfry, looking at any risk factors and the most suitable materials to use.

Jon Blake, Managing Director, Abate
