Heating Project Update - Flue Replacement
Probably the most visual work of the week is the removal of the flue lining from the chimney that serves the boiler and installation of a new flue. The scaffolding necessary for the work should be gone by Sunday. Core drilling has created a new channel for the heating pipes under the chancel steps and into the choir stalls. The return pipes are still being installed and should be complete next week, at which point the pipes taking the hot water out will be installed. Elsewhere in the church, Lodge and Son, our principle contractors, who are specialist in working in listed church buildings, are repairing some of the masonry.
