Work to restore a Victorian repository for corpses and human bones to its former glory is nearing completion.
Charnel House in Cliffe will officially re-open to the public on Saturday June 28.
The project is being carried out by Kent firm B W May and Son on behalf of St Helen's Parochial Church Council.
