THEFT OF LEAD FROM THE THORP CHAPEL ROOF at ALL SAINTS’ CHURCH, ASHWELLTHORPE – TUESDAY 1 NOVEMBER 2016

Just a few days before the Gift Day held at the Church on Saturday 5 November 2016, some of the lead was stolen – overnight on Tuesday 1 November – from the roof of the Thorp Chapel on the north side of the Church building. The theft was noticed the next morning which enabled the police and insurance company to be advised immediately and for a temporary weather cover to be erected to avoid further water damage. A Faculty is now being sought from the Diocese to replace the lead with terne-coated stainless steel.
