The photograph will be available to view from Saturday 19th February at Number Twenty One, 21 Town Street for two months.
In 2011 the monumental structure stands tall, but take a closer look and the detail is crumbling. It would be impossible to place palms and garlands beneath its eroding spire and tired arches .Can you believe that the last major restoration was in 1841 !
A campaign to raise funds to preserve this gracious monument was launched several months ago, it has been supported by several famous faces to include Glastonbury Festival organizer Michael Eavis and Grand Designs Kevin Mcloud.
