Sky Watch Friday
St James Anglican Church is Sydney's oldest, commissioned by Governor Macquarie and designed by the convict architect, Francis Greenway. For the past few months the steeple has been surrounded by scaffolding which has now been removed to reveal the brand new copper cladding. It looks better than I had hoped and had to be done as the last time the spire was coppered was in 1822. No doubt, in time, it will regain the beautiful, soft green weathered patina that everyone loved.
