Thieves Target Parish Church
During a visit by
John Cowlin on the 17th October, he noticed a single floor tile
had been removed in the porch and hidden by a lump of grass.
On the night of October 24th, the thieves returned and removed a
further 200 quarry floor tiles, leaving 40 to 50 broken scattered
on the floor
Obviously a well planned theft taking a single tile to start with,
to see if it would
match planned work.
Quarry floor tiles were also stolen from
Monks Eleigh Church with numerous
thefts of building material from other churches.
In Bures cemetery, they removed over 60 wall coping stones from
the entrance drive
