Pip and Jim's
Heritage Restoration Project


Pip and Jim’s Church needs to raise £750,000 over the next few years to save this historic building. Urgent repairs are required for this much-loved Ilfracombe landmark.


St Philip & St James Church is known in Ilfracombe as Pip and Jim's. Due to its dominant position on the seafront it has been exposed to the salt and storms since 1856 and is now sadly in a bad state of repair.
We have begun a major Heritage Restoration Project to ensure that this important and prominent building at the entrance of Ilfracombe Harbour is fit for multi-purpose use and safe for future generations of our local community.
The works are phased, with priority given to making the building safe and weatherproof..


Our Project:

Phase 1

Secure the safety and future use of the building for the community by making it weatherproof, with urgent repairs to the roof and stonework.
