We’re uncovering the murals first so that we have a colour scheme for the whole sanctuary. We have to finish the rest of the high level sanctuary decoration next so that any scaffolding is resting on our old floor. But this work unlocks the possibility of a new floor, which we’ll need if we restore the high altar to its original position.

Here is an artist’s impression of the restored altar and the new floor. The altar has been designed by @adamarchitecture working from Joseph Hansom’s original sketches.
