We have had a problem with rising damp which has affected the walls inside and out. The walls outside have been repointed, new drains and soakaways have been installed and the damp plaster has been removed from the interior to allow the stonework to dry out. This needed to dry for about 6 months before it could be re-plastered. The plastering is complete, and waiting for this to dry out before the church can be re-decorated.
Grants will pay some of the costs, and Friends of St Nicholas are providing most of the funds needed. As work progresses more problems are arising, so any contributions will be gratefully received.
