‘An Icon Restored’
A recently completed film by the Society, which should have been a six month project
but took around three years to complete
We paid a good number of visits to the church to follow the work. The film has now been passed to the church for their records and archive.
We were asked by the Church authorities at St. Marie’s Church in Bury to film a huge project being done there to renovate the Lantern Tower.
The tower, which was in a poor state, was demolished, the stones numbered and rebuilt to stop further deterioration. The tower is one of only about three in the country and is therefore of a great historical significance.
Of course, in March 2020, work was suspended on the work because of the Covid-19 pandemic but work eventually restarted and the 39 minute film has now been completed, three years after we started!
We hope in due course that we will show it to the St. Marie’s congregation .
