Spire Inspection Due

Ledbury Reporter: Spire Inspection Due Spire Inspection Due

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.
