When Nicholson’s panelling enclosing the crossing piers was
taken down, it became apparent there was severe salt damage to their bases. The
repair of these was added to the contract, with FWA’s banker mason carrying out
the repairs to the stone pier bases by neatly cutting out the most defective
stone faces and inserting new blocks of White Hollington sandstone, which we
found to be the best stone match
The relaid floor to Chapel of Christ the King has finally
been completed and it looks good. It took FWA longer than anticipated. They are
looking forward to laying new and big stone slabs to Ambulatory and Sanctuary
flooring, which should be quicker and more straight forward.
The East Screen has been moved to its new position, minus
its back panelling, and the extra joinery pieces to allow the Chancel Screen to
fit in its new location have been delivered to site from NHR Joinery. These are
temporarily being stored in Chapel of Christ the King prior to being fitting.
