We're getting plastered!
Hope Bagot Village
The plaster covering on the north wall of Hope Bagot church has been crumbling and falling away and it was proposed that that area be re-plastered.. when the old plaster was removed, however, it was decidedly damp and it was thought sensible to fix the damp problem before re-plastering. This work will now be deferred until next year since lime plaster requires a dry atmosphere and temperate clime. Interestingly there are some positive comments in the Vistors' Book admiring the exposed stonework - the problem is that it is largely small rubble and would be very difficult to make an attractive job of pointing it. Watch this space - better still go and visit the church and see the work for yourself!
