Archaeological investigations – update

The archaeological investigations in the nave required to progress the heating project proceeded as planned last week and were concluded rather more quickly than anticipated.  Following skilful work by Churchwarden Matt Hey and the team from Durham University we were able to reopen the Priory at lunch time on Tuesday.  Some further work is planned for Monday of this week (30 April), which will involve a further closure of the nave, but we anticipate being fully open again from Tuesday 01 May onwards.  Access to the Priory for the midweek Holy Communion and Sunday worship will be unaffected by this work.
