This crucifix and panel from the roof of Six Hills Church in Lincolnshire turned out to be beyond realistic repair

Once we had removed this mild steel and cast iron crucifix and decorative panel from Six Hills Church roof and the extent of the damage became clear - many components turned out not only to be broken but to have corroded away completely - it was agreed with English Heritage that our blacksmiths would re-create the crest using an appropriate mix of classical forging techniques and 21st century technology.  For example, as it would have proved prohibitively expensive to have new castings made of the circular panels, English Heritage accepted our proposal to produce replicas in laser cut steel.
