Preserving St George's church
Being set above the beach and close to the sea makes the location beautiful and inspired in good weather. However, when
it turns to a rasping North Easterly in November, the effect of this location on the building can be more easily imagined.
Built from local sandstone, the church has been laid siege by the elements and regular stonework repairs are required
to keep these elements out of the building's interior.
Recent works on the North Transept can be seen below. These are part of the current �93,000 programme of work:
