Plaque restored and re-hung

Joseph Bosworth plaque – restored and re-hung

Three months after removing this huge plaque from Saint Ediths church in Monks Kirby, the day had arrived to deliver the fully restored works to its original location.

Strengthened with steel bars running down the rear of the panels and a fully strengthened frame we are confident that the restored plaque will be rigid for many decades to come.

Because of the weight a winch had to be used to lift the plaque into position before being screwed securely to the wall.

Now in position the winch was removed and the plaque is ready for the parishioners to admire.
