Rusty galvanized gutter is no more!

Jim reports that the workmen removed the rusty galvanized gutter above the bells in the ringing chamber today (2013Mar27We).  The gutter had long since stopped keeping water off the bells, and instead had been shedding rust flakes and chunks of rusty metal onto the bells and (more recently) into the rain awning.  Photos of the extensive scaffolding they set up above the bells are below.  The scaffolding will be taken down by Saturday night so the bells are ready for Easter service ringing.

Once the scaffolding is down we’ll put the rain awning back up to keep the bells dry.

This job was too big for the ringers to handle safely themselves.  We thank the generous anonymous donor who made this possible.
