HLF Tower Project Report
June 2016 - Tower Completed!
March 2016 Tower Update
On Wednesday 24th
February there was a site meeting with Mark Norris (Pierra
Restorations), James Kenton (Church architect) and David John
(Historic England) who was extremely happy with the standard of the work being done
on the tower
The top two lifts of
the scaffolding have been struck (taken down). We can now see some of
the repair work that has been done on the tower.
We had hoped that the
Church Clock would be returned to the tower during the first week of
March. Unfortunately Smith of Derby do not have engineers available
until March 21st/22nd when they will put the
serviced and regilded clock back on the tower. At the moment it is on
display for visitors who attend tours at the Smith of Derby
remaining ragstone lower down the tower will be completed in the next
three weeks on the tower and round the windows. All the scaffolding
can then be removed, we hope by 31st March.
Meanwhile on Monday
14th March John Taylor (Bell Founders) will move into the
bell ringing chamber to start work on installing the new rope guides
as well as repairing the bells.
David John (Historic
England) will return to inspect the tower when all work is completed
so that he can sign off St. Peter’s Parish Church as no longer
being ‘an historic church at risk’.
