Today is Wednesday 23rd December and the spire is virtually complete. The builders have been working flat-out for the last few weeks. It’s a great pity that the church won’t have shed its scaffolding in time for Christmas. But it’s been wonderful to see the work advance so quickly.
The builders tell me they’ll be back between Christmas and New Year to cement in the large stone ball at the pinnacle, and fix the weather cock back on its perch high over the village.
