As part of the extensive restoration of the bellower of Gresford Church near Wrexham it was decided to commemorate the long service of the chief bellringer by having his portrait carved in situ.  Hilton kindly sat on the scaffold 120 feet up while I carved his image over two days.  He will now forever be part of the building he loves.
