Hitting the heights! This top section has been cleaned by the workmen.

Chancel ceiling gets a good clean

It's a tough job but somebody has got to do it! For the past couple of weeks workmen have gone about their business almost unnoticed high above on scaffolding in the Chancel of St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray, as these pictures by Team Parish website editor Phil Balding show.

They have been giving the ceiling and walls a good clean so that spotlights and the eight new Flemish candelabra can be put up in the next week or so.

The ceiling of the North Transept has also been cleaned so that electricians can soon put up the new pendant lights in the nave and transepts.
