Handrail Beside the Main Gate

You may recall that several months ago the Churchwardens wondered whether the Friends might be able to fund the modest cost of providing an ornamental wrought iron handrail beside the main gate, mainly to assist the less able bodied to safely negotiate the steps. However, a Faculty was needed to approve the location and design and this takes time. We understand that progress is being made and, providing the Archdeacon has no objections, it seems likely that the go ahead will be received in the coming weeks. Ian Ridgway at Felbrigg Forge in the village has produced the design for the handrail which complements the entrance gates and lamp that he also fabricated.
We’ll bring you an update the moment it happens.
