The Old Church Tower
February 9th 2016
Statement from Malvern Hills District Council:
‘Following the adverse weather we have been having recently it has been brought to our attention a piece of masonry has fallen from the Pepperpot on the side of the building where the staff entrance is located.
Following an assessment by our health and safety team we have evaluated the risk and it has been decided to put up a protective canopy on that side of the building as a precaution to protect staff and others that may need to use that entrance. That work will start today (Tuesday). The Tourist Information Centre and main visitor entrance are unaffected.
We continue to work with English Heritage to secure funding to carry out restoration and maintenance work on the building itself.’
