A new cross for St. Bartholomews.

For nearly 140 years the stone cross surmounting the south apex of St. Bartholomews has had to withstand everything that the elements can throw at it at a height of 140 feet. So no surprise perhaps that a recent inspection revealed some structural deterioration. Unfortunately repairs in situ were found to be impracticable and a new cross will need to be commissioned. (Dare one suggest fibre-glass?). Following removal of the present cross the vertiginous scaffolding will need to be removed and re-erected when the new cross is ready.
