Permission has been granted for a grade-I listed village church to be lit up at night.
The parochial church council at St Paul’s Church in Kewstoke applied for planning permission to install three lights.
North Somerset Council has agreed two lights can be installed at the base of the church, and another on the roof, to light up the tower.
One person, who lives in Kewstoke Road, commented on the application and said: “St Paul’s is a major village landmark and carries a huge amount of village history.
“It should be a prominent and visible beacon for the village and illuminating the tower at night would highlight the importance of this historic building within the community.”
The council approved the application, on the condition the lights are switched off at 11pm at the latest.
Archeological works will be carried out first, in case human remains lie beneath where the electrical cables will be installed.
