St Joseph’s as never seen before

What was under St Joseph’s roof?  There was not as much wood as there should have been – some of it had rotted away! Click to see some photos.

The roof was removed in order to replace slates and lay insulation.  But first we will replace / repair and treat the timbers.
The pictures below also show the interior of the church without its floor.  Again wood rot was found in the timbers below the floor.
