Oak Screen Memorial Text Repairs

Sometimes, it’s the little things....

We are working with specialist craftsmen on repairs to a memorial screen at St Mary’s in Mirfield.  The missing carved letters have been individually crafted in oak and reinstated by the carpenters.  The repairs have involved members of the family commemorated in the screen, who were able to visit the work taking place and get involved with the project.

...and sometimes it’s the BIG things! 

The photo on the right shows the scaffolding rising up the tower...

St Hilda’s Church Porch Repaired

Following an act of vandalism earlier in the year, the old cross over the entrance to the church was destroyed when forced to the ground.  The cross has been carefully re-carved by specialist masons and replaced on the original base, welcoming visitors into the church once again.
