…here are a few more pictures of the tower work. We are very lucky to have had Roger and Will Tyrrell work on the tower – they have been extremely helpful and accommodating with all our questions and requests to take photos during their work.
Will finishing off the gold leaf on the clock face.
The new louvres covering the sound openings – the wood will darken before reaching it’s final colour, but here it is freshly oiled.
The new string course on the North face of the tower.
Repairing the stone work.
The finished gargoyle.
A grotesque with repaired string course to the right.
The tower – showing the fresh lime mortar in the flint work.
The new bells will be arriving shortly and the current aim is for the first service with the new bells to be Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve.
Many thanks to Roger and Will Tyrrell for their help and all their work on the tower.
