The case of the missing louvre

Missing louvre windowWe hope this isn’t a sign that things are beginning to deteriorate on the spire. But one of the top-most wooden louvres has suddenly fallen out (see right). No-one’s sure whether it’s fallen inside the spire, or been blown out onto the roof.

I’m no expert, but I’d have thought that such a wide opening to the winds and rain could further weaken the structure.

Thanks, Alan, for the photo.

14 March: Village Heritage Warden Richard Snodin writes: “I was walking down High Street yesterday afternoon, when I noticed that you can now see daylight through the spire! – just a small gap… but noticeable.

“No doubt it is through the crack and the missing louvre window.”
