Pre­ven­tion is bet­ter than cure

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

RESTORA­TION, as your Novem­ber 21 is­sue points out, is a won­der­ful thing. In re­cent years, many hun­dreds of churches have been brought back to life thanks to the work of skilled crafts­men. How­ever, ef­fec­tive main­te­nance of churches and other his­toric build­ings can pre­vent the need for restora­tion. Reg­u­lar in­spec­tions, gut­ter clear­ances and sim­ple re­pairs pro­long the life of a church and can also save money, as they pre­vent what can of­ten be ex­pen­sive restora­tion work. Claire Walker, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, Na­tional Churches Trust
