Repairs to chapel start

Repair work, to cost £6,500, began this week on the historic Red Mount Chapel, Norfolk which earlier this year was the centre of a row between conservationists and Fr Leo Hammond, chairman of the Red Mount Chapel Committee.

Grants for the repairs have been offered by the Historic Churches Preservation Trust and the Historic Buildings Council as well as the Norfolk Churches Trust.

In April, members of the Kings Lynn Preservation Trust claimed that the chapel, used by many pilgrims on their way to Walsingham, continued to decay alarmingly and that its condition was "little short of a national scandal."

Fr Hammond said however that the Trust's allegations were "gross]) exaggerated".

Work on the chapel's damaged buttresses will now begin at an estimated cost of £1,500. Other repairs are expected to cost £5,000.
