Phase 5 - inside the west door
The work of Phase is going well although it may not look like it from this picture.
Extra scaffolding was needed to support the gallery while the .bases of the posts were being repaired. This work has been completed and the area will be cleared to allow the foundation of the new floor to be laid soon. ​​​

Phase 5 progress
The work on Phase 5 of the restoration of Newport Minster is progressing well. The east window and the window over Sir Edward Horsey's monument have been taken out to be restored. The high altar and Sir Edward have been covered in scaffolding and boarded up to protect them.
At the west end the floor has been taken up beneath the gallery and the bases of the columns supporting the gallery are being repaired. Outside the south chancel roof, Horsey chapel and kitchen are being repaired.
The church may look a bit like a building site but services are continuing as normal and the church is open most of the time for visitors.
