A set of historic metal railings at Halifax Minster are set for a makeover following a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The 200-year-old fences have been an ever-present at the site and have been badly weathered, come loose and are causing potential hazards in places. Work got underway on the Grade I listed building, and is hoped to be completed in the near future.

Halifax Minster, or the Church of John the Baptist, has been at the heart of the Yorkshire town for the past 900 years and is an important place for people of all faiths to come together.

The repairs are being carried out using traditional forging techniques and reclaimed pieces of wrought iron are being used to improve the weathered sections by replacing the missing pieces.

Canon Hilary Barber, vicar of the Minster, told the Halifax Courier: "We are very pleased with the work that is being carried out on the refurbishment of the railings."
