The East End 13 November 2020

Tiling the roof of the north aisle was well advanced, and an access from the internal balcony to the balcony above the west porch was being created through the bottom of one of the lancet windows. This will allow easier maintenance both for the drainage from the balcony and for the floodlights that are located on the balcony.
