We are reaching the final stage of fundraising for a second phase of conservation work which will see the fragile fabric in the east end recorded, secured, and conserved, and the alabaster panels to the right of St George and the Dragon re-instated. Once pending applications with the War Memorials Trust and Historic England have been assessed, the shortfall can be established. We are grateful for the support of the Mercers' Company who have already offererd a grant of £25,000. The work will be split into two stages: stage one involves investigative works to assess the crypt and ascertain why the east end floor is slipping- this enables the scope of the work to be finalised and the project to go to out to tender.
This is the pulpit which after years of exposure to the elements requires extensive conservation work to secure its fabric and its future existence. The conservation of this decorative feature forms part of the second phase of conservation works due to be undertaken once all funding is in place.
