Scaffolding enters the choir stalls. From stone floor to wooden ceiling, intricate towers of metal poles and wooden planks are swathed in white plastic sheeting, secured at the base with matching white gaffer tape. Hard hats, harnesses and high visibility jackets gather near the stalls, with buckets and brooms, crates and clamps, close by. Wadding and padding protect the stonework, and a plywood board displays the work schedule, health and safety notices, and project information. A plastic chain, in red and white, marks off the work area at the foot of the concrete arch supporting Jacob Epstein’s aluminium sculpture of Jesus. Epstein’s Jesus – by tradition a workman – hovers contentedly in the middle of it all, open-handed.
