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 workshops.


Any 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’.
