Quote”I just thought of the spire of St. Georges Church, Hardwicke Place, the scaffolding has been wrapped around it for many years now. Does anyone know what’s the purpose/reason?”
The reason was that when a renovation was first attempted in the mid 1980’s the developers went bust.
About a decade went by before anyone else attempted a restoration and apparently the scaffolding had rusted solid.
Given its location and ‘secure’ position the current owners haven’t bothered removing it. I wouldn’t fancy getting up there with an angle grinder myself!!!!!
