Masonry fall: update

Dear All, 

A quick update on the masonry fall.

Our contractor visited the church over the weekend and inspected the stone work on the Tower. He found no evidence of additional loose masonry.

However, as a precaution, the PCC has decided to leave the cordons in place while the cold weather persists, just in case of further ice damage. 

Therefore, please continue to be vigilant in that part of the churchyard and keep outside the cordoned area for the time being.

Thank you, 

Maxine Johnson, Lay Incumbent

Safety Notice! Masonry fall

An important Safety Alert to all taking exercise or visiting the churchyard.

There has been a fall of masonry from the Tower, as you can see from the photos. The area has been taped off until our usual roofing contractors/structural engineers are able to visit and inspect and then assess the situation.

Please take care while visiting and do not cross the tape please.

Such a perfect day

We had snow at the beginning of the week, but on Tuesday the sun came out and turned our villages into a winter paradise! Everyone came out to enjoy it and many took photos, which are simply beautiful. A real bright spot in a grim January and giving some wonderful memories of a perfect day!

Here are the photos, with some stunning views of St Peter’s and our sister church St Andrew’s in Tur Langton, but the real stars are the trees, especially the Copper Beech tree in Church Langton and, of course, the glorious blue sky.

Thank you to everyone who generously shared their photos and cheered us all up!
