Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Radwinter

Insertion of All-person toilet, Kitchenette and flower sink.

The North Vestry floor was lowered, level with the Nave, and a stone breather perimeter inserted. Under-floor heating was incorporated below the tiles. Using existing carved cupboard doors, a space was partitioned off, providing an all-person accessible toilet. A baby change shelf was formed in the window recess. The robe cupboard was transformed into a kitchenette, with sink, shelves and cupboards. New split carved doors were made, incorporating hand-carved crocus emblems, complimenting rose emblems on existing doors. Delft-style tiles, showing scenes of Radwinter, were hand made by Douglas Watson Studios, and surround the kitchenette sink. An Arts and Crafts cast-iron fireplace was repaired, and loose Delft tiles replaced. A tap was added to a small existing stone sink, surrounded by Delft tiles. This is now used by flower arrangers. Auravisions fixed windows, converting some to open. The glass was cleaned and re-leaded.
