If you've been wandering around the churchyard recently you may have noticed some bollards on the North side of the church, and work going on there. We have been investigating drainage problems, which have caused a lot of dampness on the North wall of the church, and found that an old soakaway was very blocked. It has now been redug, and filled with plastic crates to prevent problems in the future. Fortunately, there were no graves in this area, as it has always been a soakaway, so the work went along very smoothly. We're hoping that will sort out the problem of the dampness, and that the North wall will gradually dry out. When it is dry we will think about replastering and painting the wall.
