And here it is after. The foundation is being laid for the new corner buttress following removal of the existing archway.

A rare shot inside the church. Its a work bench with two riddles or sieves that were used to segregate crushed brick, coal and other aggregates in order to manufacture the mortar to match the existing mortar of the church. This mortar was used for repointing the brickwork and replacing damaged bricks.
