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.
