The building work continues to progress well inside the Church, East Wing and the Link Building. Some of the work is visible from the roadside but a lot is happening ‘behind the scenes’. Here is a preview of the design for one of the Link Building windows. The glass will be delivered shortly and installation of the windows will commence in the coming weeks. The stained-glass window is also due to be installed in its new location in the Church mid-April.
The Link Building is progressing quickly with the roof timbers now in place and the stone framed entrance starting to take shape. In the Church, the wiring and decorating is almost complete and the first of the Yorkshire grit stone paving will be laid next week!

The fencing is now in place and work is well underway here at All Saints. There has been significant progress made inside the Church in the last couple of weeks including the lifting of the floor. During this process three memorial stones were uncovered, the largest of which was dated 1807. In recent days we have also seen the York Glaziers Trust remove the 19th century stained glass window at the north end of the South Aisle. The window will be taken away temporarily by the York Glaziers Trust to be restored before being repositioned on the west side of the South Aisle.
If you have been walking past the church you will have noticed the digging between the Church and Church House. This is where the foundations will be laid for our new Link Building and progress in this area will be seen over the coming weeks.
