Scope and content

Dr Alan Gaydon was churchwarden at St Mary The Virgin for several years and during his tenure the gales of January 25th 1990 blew the stature of John The Baptist off the base of the spire. It impacted into the roof above the organ pipes which resulted in dirt getting into the pipes and a £15,000 bill to repair the organ. A new statue of John The Baptist was created and Alan documented its creation which you can see in these photographs.
