Countdown to start of conservation work
Years of detailed planning and fundraising have paid off, and conservation work on the East Church will get underway this month.
As Trust Director Victoria Collison-Owen commented:
“We owe a debt of thanks to so many people - in particular to the Friends of the East Church - who have supported us through the years. And of course none of this would have been possible without generous funding.“
Drainage work to direct water away from the building is the first priority, after which work can begin on the internal replacement of gypsum plaster with ‘breatheable’ lime plasterwork. The major external works - including removing the cement harl and replacing it with lime will begin in 2009. We’ll be keeping you up-to-date with all that’s happening in future newsletters and on the East Church website.
