INSPIRE! Appeal Phase 1 Work

St Brides Church topping out.jpgThe contract is now past the half-way mark. Work on the topmost part of the spire is complete, the stone spirelet and weathervane having been cleaned, repaired and re-gilded.

In order to install new lead protection to the spire's fourth tier cornice ledges, several stages of scaffolding will be taken down this coming week. Cleaning, stone repairs and re-carving of elements elsewhere are all in full swing.

Earlier in the week, this 'Topping-Out' of the work was celebrated, attended by representatives of St Bride's, English Heritage, the professional consultants and other invited guests, with a brief reception following, all generously hosted by the contractor.
