Stabilisation North and South transepts

Damaged masonry for both the transepts will be deconstructed.  Temporary steel support frames will be installed, and temporary wall cladding will be needed.

September 2020 – The main focus for the South Transept has been pouring the large concrete foundation needed for the steel support frame that will be used to stabilise the transept. Once this has been installed we will start carefully deconstructing the transept wall.
