Winter Update - restoration - St Mary's
The scaffolding is down and the church is looking great, despite the volume of rain and inclement weather we’ve experienced. The interior space now shows off the beautiful craftsmanship that is the new roofs, both in the nave and chancel and the south aisle. The stonemasons are hard at work offsite, preparing the new stonework for the north and south windows. The thatchers have really worked their magic and have been finishing the necessary dressing of the thatch around the eaves. Thatching team Jamie, Tom and Miles have done an incredible job – we now have a beautiful and fitting thatched roof for our church once more. A highlight is the lovely scalloping on the north face above the eaves.
