Brighter church tower in Old Buckenham

Tower now uncovered
The renovation work on the tower of All Saints Church has now finished and all the covering and scaffolding has come down. All the loose flints have been firmly embedded in with plenty of lime mortar, windows have been replaced and brickwork repaired. So the tower looks quite different, much lighter in colour and with much less flint on view.

These photos, taken in the afternoon's bright sunlight, give an indication of the new look. It will, of course, weather over time and become a bit more like the tower we have been used to looking at for many decades.
