For some weeks scaffolding shrouded the west wall of the church.  Hidden behind it all work was going on to restore the severely eroded stonework and to replace that which was found to be beyond repair.

Under the direction of our architect, DBR Ltd have carried out the work, which has also included some repairs to the flooring in the north porch.

It has been a conservation project rather than complete renewal, and a lot of the work that has been done cannot be seen from street level.  However, armed with hard hat and camera, your intrepid churchwarden was offered a trip up the scaffolding to see it all at close quarters - too good a chance to miss:-

Here are a few pictures
