After the Fire

For those working in conservation there are few sights more dreadful than when a church is damaged or destroyed by fire. Sadly, the destruction invariably extends to include areas which were not directly damaged by the flame or heat of the fire, but indirectly, by the smoke, soot and falling debris, or by the large volume of water used to extinguish the fire.
