Church-goers will face some disruption when a war memorial is restored.

Castle Hedingham Parish Council is using a £12,855 grant to restore the Grade II listed memorial in St Nicholas Churchyard.

One footpath in the churchyard will be closed from Monday and some people might experience problems parking.

The work is expected to last for at least one week.

The memorial was built in 1921, but is suffering from wear and tear and subsidence.

Inscriptions on the main part of the memorial, built using Anglo-Norman stone, have also become worn and difficult to read.

The restoration will be overseen by conservation specialists and in order not to disturb ancient burials underneath a structure of piles will be used to support the foundation, rather than try to correct the tilt.

The money has been granted by the Grants for War Memorials scheme, which is jointly funded by English Heritage and The Wolfson Foundation and is administered by the War Memorials Trust.
