As part of an options appraisal for the west end of the church, OCC carried out a detailed assessment of the likely effect of any changes to the surroundings on the stonework of the 12th century doorway. This involved understanding current decay mechanisms,  using a telemetric system to record environmental data and observing how groundwater or indirect rainfall affects the stonework. Once this information was available, it was possible to estimate the likely effect of installing a closed porch or screen.
