The original roof is now off. New beams will be installed, the circular opening that was closed off will be reopened, new galvanised sheeting will be installed and the original drains that drained this roof also below the Cathedral floor will be restored.
However as you can see above we have some cracks in the parapet wall to repair as well.

These are the first pictures of the sanctuary roof. It appears that at some time a second roof was built over the original roof. We will be restoring the orginal. Unfortunately the parapet wall appears to be in poor shape with quite a few cracks.

The galvanised sheets have been installed, the seamless copper guttering has been installed as well as the galvanised ridge caps. The roof is now complete and it is a gratifying site to see it glimmering in the sun. We are deeply thankful to all who played any part in restoring this roof. We thank God, we thank them and we thank God for them.
