Repair work to the roof of the 12th century Priory in Cartmel has begun.

Unfortunately it has been discovered that far more damage than was originally estimated.

Initially, it was thought the roof needed re-slating.

Once  the slates were taken off, it became apparent that there was significant timber damage to 5 beams which also need replacing.

Furthermore, it has been reported that now that the beams have been removed, it is probable that the wood was from acorns germinated in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, possibly before the Spanish Armada!
