St Mary’s reaches halfway point

The Yorkshire Post reports:

An East Riding church has announced that it is halfway through the first phase of an ambitious restoration project – 500 years to the day when its tower fell, killing dozens of worshipers. Work started last year thanks to a £421,400 grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

High up on the ceiling are more than 600 wooden carvings – a vast number for a parish church. Many of these colourful artworks date from the Tudor restoration in the 1520s.
