Scope and content

Bishop writes to Fr Stephen Doupe saying that there is little money for a new Church at Papworth. Not having seen the existing chapel he makes assumptions and provides a lengthy set of suggestions regarding the design and restructuring of the chapel - somewhat similar to that at Walsingham which cost far less than £2000. Porch stays; WC converted with present pipe. Herewith a photo of Walsingham church. The Bishop will be in Cambridge for December 9 to 12th. The next Finance Board meeting is on 24th November perhaps Fr Doupe could provide descriptions or a scale drawing?
Pencilled notes regarding plot size and church size.
