Sandtoft Tiles from Hull have been on site at the Church this morning with our architect, David Glew, taking samples of the various types of tiles to look how they can best colour match them. The proposal is for new tiles to furnish the North Chancel and North Nave Side and the Southern aspects to be refitted with the best of the reclaimed tiles. There are a few different sizes and colour variants which will have to be matched to the approval of English Heritage. These will be bespoke tiles for our church.
The original style of tiles can no longer be manufacturered as the firing process would now contravene every health, safety and environment rule going. So it is a best match exercise.
