The cill of the small window in the priest’s vestry was too low for the height of the new kitchen units so it has been taken out and rebuilt higher, making the new kitchen window a bit smaller.

The stonemasons have been working this week to take out the inner stone arch in the doorway between the church and the Ambulatory. This enlarging of the doorway will allow a higher and wider opening, and, with the new floor level being raised, a much easier access from the church to the Hall, particularly for wheelchair users.Continue reading “Thomas Field Hall: Enlarging the Doorway”
