it is only painted on side wall,the lofts are through a walkway,the area is quiet but the church has had problems with kids throwing stones and breaking(very expensive and unique)stained glass windows,the church is dated from 1650 and has a "sailors loft"(used in olden days for sailors to hear sermon and leave quietly with access stair to dock and boats)the kids have also been trying to climb walls and get into lofts,the passkeeper told me the little so n sos have run up £1000 worth of damage in past few months,thing is its NOT kids from the area(our area is quiet and respectable)its kids from local estate who can be wild(a few of the parents need a kick up the a** and lessons in parenting skills)i think this will be brought up at next community council meeting!
my friend sammy knows the guy whos looking after the birds,there are 20 pigeons in loft at present,the guy whos looking after it can only go once a day and let birds out for a fly round,we have been going daily to catch him but missed him by minutes,sammy is going to speak to him and pass on my number and e mail etc,i have also left a bag of pigeon food hanging on loft acess door,the guy looking after the birds is not a pigeon racer,he is just keeping the loft going just now,cleaning,feeding,letting the birds free fly,i dont know what his other commitments are and if he stays local(in town),but i have said to sammy that i am willing to help out in any way i can as it would be sad if the loft has to close and the birds have to find new homes or be sold,it sounds like i wont get my feral space with this loft but if it means the pigeons can stay in their home im happy to help out
