New Lighting Scheme

This of you who know St. Helen's Church well will know that we have a beautiful building but a

truly awful set of lights! Over the last couple of years, a lot of hard work has gone into designing a

new lighting scheme (and associated electrics) that will enhance the building. No more strange

orange glow, instead all of the features will be able to be seen properly! We are particularly excited

by the new pendants which will light the main aisle and side chapel (the design of which is inspired

by the chevron pattern of the pillars) and the limited spectrum lighting which will enable the main wall

paintings to be seen without them being damaged. The plans have been drawn up by a specialist

company CES and our architect, John Bailey We are now one step away from the plans being approved.

 

Below are a small selection of the plans to give you a flavour of what is planned.
