Church Restoration

We have begun our ambitious programme of restoration in 2017. Many members of our community have given up their time to attend working parties held throughout August,. We have started removing over a hundred years of varnish from the doors. There are 48 panels and the conservation team in March experimented on just one to create a method statement that we can follow.

Using the same materials and techniques several other panels have now been restored.

On Tuesday 29th August from 2-5.30pm we will again be working on the Grand Doors. If you have the time to spare, some elbow grease and the desire to see what the Doors originally looked like then do join us. We are now over half way to brining the doors back to their original beauty.
