On top of the St Mary’s Church Bell Tower has been a wind vane. The wind vane has been there since 1785 and came down due to wind in 2019. This is the first time most people had to see the wind vane in detail.
After 235 years it is in remarkably good condition, but it still needed a restoration job. The TV program “The Repair Shop” were asked to look at it. They agreed to see it and Father Lesley, the vicar, took it to them on Wednesday 28th August 2019. It has since been restored by their expert. The pictures on this page show the bad shape it was in.
How it looks after repairs is on this page.
