Scaffolding up in the front of church
A little atmospheric moment on the morning of 1st December 2022. Scaffolders have finished building the structures so the work can commence!
Now at the back of the church
As such we are now using the back of the church, while the building work continues in the front. Here is the unvarnished but sanded and treated stairwell and the top (of 3) part of the font as it was moved on 4th November 2022.
Discovery in the Porch
We had an exciting discovery: behind the wall in the porch there are 2 original wooden beams. Whilst we cannot be sure that these date from the 1850’s we are looking to make a feature of these in the design for the porch.
Some of the pews have started to arrive back at the church. The restoration process here included painting the wood to look as if it is oak. These pews are destined for storage in the loft.
A busy start to 2023
March 2023 update
While the front of the Church remains a construction site, we are seeing glimpses of what is to come! Please watch for an upcoming email on how you can help support the Building Tomorrow Project.
