Winchester Cathedral roof frame work in place
An operation to lift a giant 27-tonne scaffolding frame on to Winchester Cathedral has been completed.
Following a prayer from vice-dean Canon Roly Riem, the first section was lifted into place just before 09:00 GMT.
It took a day to install the scaffolding frame, which will be in place for two years while roof repairs are carried out
The work was postponed on Tuesday because the crane hoisting the sections did not have enough counterweights.
The repairs will conserve and restore lead work on the east end of the roof.
The works form part of a £20.5m scheme, which includes new exhibition spaces in the south transept and the renovation of the Learning Centre.
