The alterations to the 1827 chapel at Great Glen are coming on apace. At present, it is difficult to see what the final result will be for dust and rubble, but already the interior is looking brighter and less cramped, the new and safer staircase to the gallery is in place and the external ramp for disabled access is taking shape.

Meanwhile, the notice board declares to passers-by: 'Open as usual — simply undergoing a faith-lift!'
