Faculty Petition

Faculty petition – Shoring up the boundary wall near to infant grave


NOTICE IS GIVEN that we are applying to the Consistory Court of the diocese for permission to carry out the following:

CONFIRMATORY APPLICATION for works undertaken with Interim Faculty: –
To complete the recommendation of the structural engineer as below:

When viewed from the churchyard the current propping is not sufficient and this should be
upgraded with more substantial timbers, 100mm x 50mm with three shores which should have a vertical against the wall, a sole plate, diagonal rakers and a bracing timber. The wall is quite open jointed and the lean is very pronounced and is up to 180mm when a plumbob is used. The maximum acceptable lean is 112mm.
