Church faces beetle bill

This article was published in May 1957. Please see Latest News for more recent information.

Death watch beetle had been found at Eaton Bray Parish Church - in the roof, pulpit, screen, the west end of the nave roof, the belfry and the organ.

The Rev P.B. Graham said the restoration of the woodwork would cost a tremendous amount.

He said: "If would not be suprising if we have to raise £3,000 but I am sure it can be done."
