Carved Casework restoration
Church Office: August 2017
The specialist restoration of the 300+ year old wooden casework has now been completed by 'Renatus'. The grime of ages has been cleaned back to reveal more of the intricacies and textures of the carved 'foliage', scrolls and cherubs. In addition, the 1920s fretwork of the side panels has been cleaned, with new acoustic backing cloth.
Some fragments that had become separated were carefully replaced, and one or two new infill pieces were carved, to harmonise some of the outlines. However, there are still a small selection of 'missing pieces', which you might be able to spot on the photo below. Since there is no sign of them in the organ, they may have been missing when the case arrived in 1858!
