In my ignorance I had believed that the faculty process was intended to 
prevent works that would impair use of the building in the way intended. 
This tale sounds a bit like the situation at Hatfield, Yorkshire where, 
whatever the reason for ringing being stopped, any chance of restoration 
was stymied by the installation of massive heating ducts through the 
ringing room. I am rather surprised that a faculty was granted for such 
work at Corbridge, a Grade 1 listed building. Were there no formal 
objections to it?
