Spire Inspection Due
Updated 3:10pm Wednesday 16th July 2014 in News
THE MEDIEVAL spire of St Michael and All Angels Church in Ledbury will undergo its five year inspection next year, 2015, on a date still to be announced.
Two years ago, electronic alarms were installed high in the spire of Ledbury Parish Church, following concerns that the huge metal counter-weight holding the spire steady was corroding and could need replacing in the future.
A sturdy metal grid was installed catch the internal iron rod should it fall, preventing it from hitting the ground.
The alarms would give an immediate alert of the counter-weight’s failure.
