In September 2006, vandals entered the church and set fire to the alter cloth. Luckily, the fire did not take hold, but the cloth was destroyed and the alter itself damaged. The alter had been brought from the old St. Owen's church (qv) to replace the old stone alter. The clean-up was carried out by local volunteers; the pictures show three generations, from Kath Parr to Bradley, Henry Ashman's grandson.
