A HUDDERSFIELD churchyard boundary wall is being restored to its former glory.
Kirkheaton Parish Church has had wooden supports holding up its churchyard wall for several years.
The wall was bowing out towards the pavement in Church Lane because of pressure from soil which had worked its way down the sloping graveyard over the years.
Now, Kirklees Council has got approval from heritage organisations to fix the wall.
Permission had to be sought because the wall, and the church, are listed buildings.
Special materials are being used to meet legal standards.
The wall became council property when the churchyard was closed years ago.
It is being re-built, stone by stone, by Kirklees Building Services workers (pictured).
To do the work, they have had to dig up soil which had slid against the wall and also move headstones.
But the headstones will be placed back in their original positions.
Work started on September 29 and is expected to continue for another seven to 10 weeks.
