Breaking news: Milestone reached as the weathervane returns to the top of St Wulfram’s Church spire
This calls for a big cheer!
At lunch-time today (Friday), steeplejacks finally put back in place the weathervane atop the spire of the town’s St Wulfram’s Church.
It brings the £600,000 restoration project to a close just over a year after it began. It was back in February 2014 that the scaffolding was erected around the church, to allow Cedar steeplejacks to begin replacing a section of stonework.
Their joy was clear as today they finally placed the last piece.
The photos were taken by well-known Grantham man Roger Graves, who was pleased to have witnessed the moment the work was completed.
He said: “It was very exciting, and the conditions were perfect for it.”
