Details announced for the Ipswich Northern Route
The builders have been working at the Church through May. The stonework on the windows is near completion, they are re-pointing various areas of the Church to stop water getting into the stonework. They will be moving onto the north side, removing concrete render which doesn't allow the stone to breathe and aggravates the damp issues on the Chancel wall. The yellow container will be there for a bit longer!
