For most historic buildings, the continuing maintenance and repair of their fabric is an ongoing requirement, so the opportunity to address these issues in a cohesive manner seldom arises. Here the approach is based on painstaking research and covers the cleaning and restoration of the interior and exterior, the removal of many 20th century accretions, the opening up of the crypt and the subtle integration of accessibility requirements. This holistic and thoughtful approach to the care of an important building sets new benchmarks in the conservation of our historic fabric.
