Volunteers at St. Botolph's Church in Boston, Lincolnshire, say it will take at least another year for the building to fully recover from the floods of December when water cascaded through the 700 year old building. It is not yet dry inside and a new heating system will have to be installed.
Sections of the building remain cordoned off until the damage can be fully assessed beneath woodwork on the floor. Temporary wiring has been fixed around the Grade 1* listed church and the office, shop and cafe remain closed, though services are carrying on and visitors can once again be admitted.
