Bell Canopy

The outside space between the new door from the ambulatory of the Cathedral to the new door into the side porch of St Mary’s will soon be sheltered by a bronze canopy. This will be hung from a beam extending from Holy Trinity Cathedral.

In the next few weeks, if you see a crane sitting in St Mary’s Court from Parnell Road, it will be lifting this new canopy into place. The canopy itself will weigh in the region of 1 tonne.

This bespoke canopy has been designed by Fearon Hay Architects and manufactured by Sheetmetals Ltd in their Mt Wellington workshop.

The photos show it nearing completion in the factory.
