Building works start at St John's, Waterloo
The plans to comprehensively reshape the interior of St John's, Waterloo inched a little closer to completion with the first works that took place earlier this month. Paving slabs in the courtyard have been lifted to allow a waterproof membrane to be laid beneath them: a necessary precursor to the below-ground extension of the Crypt's space. This work - seemingly quite minor - is hugely significant as it is the first building work to take place in this major project. It is hoped that it will encourage the project's supporters - and hopefully inspire new financial backers to come forward so that the whole vision for the project can be made reality.
