A new lightning

Eglise de Tocqueville-éclairage avril 2017 (4)

Work continues in the church in Tocqueville. After the restoration of the Sacred Heart statue, the installation of a new indirect lighting based on 26 Led projectors has just been completed, carried out by a local electricity company. It replaces the previous installation, which was completely failing; only one in six ceiling lights was still working, the others were unattainable, preventing the replacement of the bulbs. The new lighting allows a beautiful enhancement of the building, with four independent areas: each of the two chapels, the choir, the nave and aisles. It also provides, from the outside, a good night vision of the stained glass windows.
