The inside is now a forest of scaffolding holding up a deck to enable the architects and specialist restoration subcontractors to get a close look at the ceilings. It seems it is not as bad as we feared, but there are still substantial areas of plastering to undertake. Once that’s complete, the painting of the ceiling will get underway. The contractors have allowed a ‘window’ of ¬†four weeks to do this, so we pray that they can manage it.
There is another short video here. You might notice that the Narthex wall has now gone..!
