Back in 2010, I posted about the work being done on the Burns “Belfry” Church, and again in April this past year. Recently, work has again resumed on the restoration. The brick on the front gable has been restored.
The original front window has been restored. It had been replaced by a door for the past 32 years, per the restoration architect, Tom Howorth (http://misspreservation.com/2012/04/25/update-on-the-burns-belfry-project-in-oxford).
In this 2010 photograph, you can see the appearance of the building prior to work beginning in 2012.
On the bell tower at the front, you can see where the oculus has been missing and the space is covered. It will apparently soon be replaced.
I am uncomfortable with the glass sitting curbside while awaiting installation, and only hope it is still there and in one piece when the workmen return. There are also a series of the brick stacks placed alongside the wall, and it is unclear as to their purpose, but I suppose that will be revealed soon enough–once they are placed where they fit, like another piece to the puzzle.
