William Dodd writing to JS Hall. Condition of all EH grants that prior written approval required from English Heritage is obtained before work commences. Hence surprised to see ICHT giving approval without EH knowledge or permission. As grant aid had been given whilst the church was in use, removal of contents requires EH approval. Meryemana's interest in the church is welcomed but they cannot introduce irreversible changes. Comments on the four main areas affected: NE Vestry, S Porch, NE Chapel, Nave and Aisles. Lengthy comments on the nature of the pews and their proposed removal; requiring that temporary removal and storage be written into the lease; continues to discuss platform over the pews; outlines conditions covering: Redecoration, free standing fitments, ground/fabric disturbance, inventory (for repair and conservation purposes), specific points in pew cataloguing and management. Finally everything has to be reinstated when Meryemana leave the church. Then, EH will not object.
