Elfords, the stonework restorers, have done a very professional job cleaning the heavily begrimed stonework around the large West Door of St Peter’s. The whole process was filmed by a Channel 5 TV (Ricochet) team who have been covering stonework restoration on ancient buildings around the Country for a programme due to be broadcast on Channel 5 in September. They will give us the DTG nearer the time.
They also flew a drone over St Peter’s and its surrounds to be used as an introduction to the programme. It is this team, incidentally, who film that excellent BBC 1 series, ‘The Repair Shop’. We look forward to seeing the footage later in the year.
