Church spire set to be removed


The spire at Thimbleby’s St Margaret’s Church is set to be dismantled with work expected to be completed by the end of February.

Paul Mendham Stonemasons Ltd has been appointed by the Diocese of Lincoln as contractor.

The work will be carried out by hand from the scaffolding currently in place around the spire.

The tower will be capped and material removed will be recorded and stored for possible future use in restoration.
