The wooden pipes, originally decorated with a graining style of painting, faced down the North aisle of the church. Over the years the painting has been overshadowed by dirt and damaged.
Elizabeth Holford, a heritage conservationist, is working on restoring Betty’s metal pipes at her studio in Bristol, and will also supervise Bethan Tector, a conservation student, who is working on restoring the wooden pipes. Beth is being assisted by volunteers from the local community who are receiving some tuition in conservation whilst helping to restore Betty’s wooden pipes to their former glory. If you would like to help to restore the pipe decoration and receive free tuition in conservation, please contact Robert Greenhill, Project Coordinator, via the church office.
