Restoring the clerestory and roof

Look up and you can only dimly see what, in times past, was once one of the shining glories of St Thomas’s. Centuries of neglect have obscured vividly painted and carved ceilings, including hosts of angels – wonderful decoration! You can see what we are missing from this example of a trial cleaning.

Two of the ceiling panels were cleaned and restored in 2019 while the scaffolding was up for the restoration of the doom painting. We can now see several carved and brightly-coloured angels looking down from the restored roof. We want to restore the rest of the panels so that we can see all the angels in their colourful glory.
