  • The church is a beautiful historic marvel which has suffered coniderably by a succession of past hideous blunders and decision-making by private and official sources. The stained glass windows were historically taken away at dead of night by some "nobleman" or other, and installed elsewhere, on his own domains. In more recent times the invasion of about nine species of bats (we are told) has been taken almost as an "act of God" and must therefore not under any circumstances be disturbed - the awful stink preventing any semblance of "place of worship". The impressive collection of historic brass tomb monuments (in the S transept particularly) is almost unapproachable because it lies directly under the largest colony of bats, even in this bats' "sanctuary". Surely something could be done to avoid this appalling disgrace! It is surely not without the ingenuity of man to transfer these admittedly interesting animals to a more appropriate home? A magnificent performance I attended some years ago of Monteverdi's 1610 Vespers was spoiled by the sight of the huge display of plastic sheeting covering a large proportion of the interior, including the entire chancel. The situation has been crying out loud for long enough for a solution! A zoologist professor friend has suggested that when the bat population flies out at night it should be made impossible for them to fly back in. They are intelligent enough to make new homes elsewhere, and the young ones remaining could be otherwise transferred to the vicinity of the new homes. That sounds to me pretty complicated, but something ought to be done! It must not be considered impossible, any longer.
