A new lightning

13 Apr 2018

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.

A new look for the Sacred Heart statue

Work continues in the church in Tocqueville. The restoration of the outside statue of the Sacred Heart, which has just been completed, is the first step in a new campaign of work planned over the next three years. Frédéric Rouchet, a statues restorer in Granville, was the craftsman. This 2-metre-high cast-iron statue was erected during the great transformations of the church at the end of the 19th century; it found again the white its whiteness which makes it very visible to those who cross the village.
