Lightning Protection

Monday, 2nd October

Rodells Limited of St Albans arrived first thing this morning to install a lightning conductor to the church tower. This will become essential once the new steel bell frame is fitted. Fortunately, the wind of recent days had dropped which allowed the men to abseil down the tower wall in order to fix the route to earth. Their work was put to test almost immediately as by 6.00 pm that evening a dramatic thunderstorm accompanied by flashes of lightning hit the village!
