St Denys

Tower Screen – Photograph (PWDRO 116/72) R.F. Wheatly architect; 1932

A faculty petition was submitted for a glass and oak screen between belfry and nave in May 1932 and granted in July that year (CRO D/R 10/13). The Vicar had decided on a plan prepared by R.F. Wheatly that would cost £130. The church at St Dennis was almost completely destroyed by fire in May 1985 and there are photographs of the charred but still largely intact tower screen on the church website ( The screen was replaced in August 1987 using French white oak.
