Work in preparation for the installation of the new Jesse Window next Spring is under way.
Welcoming the start of work the Vicar , Canon Mark Soady said
I am very excited that work has on this project has begun, both on the window itself in the Barley Studios in York; and here on the building to make the window frame and wall ready to receive it
The work is expected to last a couple of weeks, but will not interfere to greatly with the church routine.
Work is being carried out by Copestone and is partly funded by CADW. The work will ensure better drainage and thus protect the East-end wall of the Lewis Chapel, allowing the Jesse tree to be safely placed there.
