MORCOTT REMEMBRANCE

The service in Morcott was led by the Churchwardens, with a larger than usual attendance on this special day. The names of the Fallen from both World Wars was read by John Williams, and the Last Post played by Eric Hazelwood. This year, a wreath was placed beneath the Roll of Honour, which named all those who served in the Great War, not only those who died but those who survived. The commemorative Horseshoe was placed on the War Memorial at the far end of the High Street and will now find a permanent home in St Mary’s Church.

St Peter’s Barrowden, Church Development Project – Bulletin No. 4.

St Peter’s Barrowden, Church Development Project – Bulletin No. 4.

Four weeks in and the builders have made steady progress with no issues 

discovered beneath the floor. 

 

  • The stone and wood floor has now been carefully removed, as has the old blower heater.

The old stone flags have been palleted and will be sold.

  • Some ancient damage by rabbits to the foundations of the pillars has been discovered.

This has now been remedied with concrete infill;

 

  • 2 more ledger stones, one dated 1685, have been discovered in the vestry area.

These will be repositioned, together with the only other ledger stone which was located

at the top of the north aisle.

  • Small fragments of human vertebrae have been found during the excavations.

These will be re-interred later in the process.

  • The new floor level will be raised to the level of the medieval floor which was higher

than the Victorian floor, recently removed;

 

Finally the first pouring of concrete to create a sub-base for the new floor has been made.
