Up on the rooftop …

No, despite the season, we’re not talking about Santa Claus. As you may remember, a few months ago, Fr Hawtin discussed the significance of weathercocks on the steeples of Anglican (and other) churches. And he mentioned that, in the process of making some urgent repairs to our church tower, St Stephen’s was adding a pointed roof with a weathercock, and (since we were up there, anyway) also a Celtic cross (made by Fr Ludwig) at the west end of the sanctuary. We thought that those of you who aren’t able to get to St Stephen’s regularly might like to see what these additions look like.

new church tower with weathercock

The refurbished church tower now has an angled roof (instead of the former flat roof), surmounted by an old-fashioned weathercock. Behind it, you can see the new Celtic cross at the west end of the nave.

Here are some additional pictures of the weathercock and the Celtic cross. (Click on pictures to embiggen.)
