In recent years the ceramic tiled floors of the aisles of St Michael’s church had become increasingly uneven, with the tiles tipping and cracking and creating a safety hazard. Investigation found that the sub-floor foundation was disintegrating and that the whole floor needed to be replaced. Also the large nave altar space had been paved with concrete slabs in a 1970s re-ordering; not only were these unsightly but rising damp penetrated the joints in wet weather and the slabs were heavily water-stained.
