Urgent restoration needed to save Long Tower Chapel

Long Tower Chapel in Londonderry is one of the most historically significant churches in Northern Ireland, but now the iconic building needs to be saved.

The church sits on a sacred site, where some believe Columba - patron saint of Derry - established his very first monastery.

The current church was opened 229 years ago when Catholic and Protestants clubbed together to raise the money needed to build it.

But its stonework is crumbling and, as Gareth Wilkinson reports, urgent restoration is required before it is too badly damaged.
