You know your homes need regular maintenance. Through the years the Church, Friary and the rest have received this regular attention. But some more areas that have served us long are now crying for replacement. We are about to embark on the first stage of a major renewal of the property. The roof tiles, probably 130 years old, are cracked and many held together with sticking plaster. We did renew most of the church roof when in 1976 we reordered the church. Work will begin this month to replace the tiles on the Friary and chapels not yet restored. It will include bringing insulation up to present standards.
