As the weather gets warmer, work on St Helen’s is progressing fast. Shaun, Dan and Jack have now finished installing their beautifully constructed oak staircase, which makes use of some reclaimed 17th century spindles.

Our lime plasterers have also been busy and the final scratch coat of plaster (made using a traditional mixture of lime, sand, water and goat hair)  is just being applied.

Outside, the front path leading to the church’s entrance has been laid and work continues on landscaping the churchyard.
