St Andrews gets divine make-over
The landmark spire in Zadoc Street has been scaffolded only twice in its life. The first time, when it was built in 1935, the scaffolding was made of timber.
On Friday the second scaffolding came down, erected three months ago to enable repairs to the 45-metre-high spire.
A year after the destructive Lismore hailstorm, the repair work to windows, brickwork and spire is almost finished.
Contractor Greg Gallpen, from Lismore Glass and Steelworks, said this was the first full repair done on the spire.
"The work we've done should see it through for a long time," he said.
