Scaffolding in the Sanctuary

Post date: Jan 31, 2013 12:08:45 PM

Over the Christmas period a second set of scaffolding was erected in the Sanctuary. During a site visit by the architect on 3rd January further problems were discovered regarding the state of repair of the ceiling above the Sanctuary. There has been an accumulation of debris over many years in the ceiling space which has resulted in a lack of circulation of air in this area. This in turn has caused some of the timbers to start to rot and these will have to be replaced. The architects are preparing a schedule of repair/restoration work to be carried out which will be sent to the Diocesan Advisory Committee for approval but unfortunately the work that will have to be carried out means the scaffolding will have to remain in place for the foreseeable future.
