Why did we do it?
This part of the building was in danger of collapse. The roofs were leaking and the walls too were letting in water, rendering the rooms unsuitable for use, and causing rot to the ancient roof timbers, recently identified as dating from the 16th century.
Remedial work to the walls and floors as well as the roofs was essential and urgently required. Further restoration of the doors leading to and from the Vestries, and from the South entrance of the Chancel, together with enhanced electrical facilities have been incorporated into the works.
