Imagine the extra stress placed on the structure, at the place appears to be well built! Sounds like there will be lots of guano for the gardens in and around the church!


the extra stress was the first thing that came to my mind, While I was reading it I assumed the way they found it was due to cracking or damage not just from a standard inspection.

12 inches really isn't that deep to account for 2 tons of droppings. Maybe I'm not picturing the "tower" right. I'm thinking of a steeple which is fairly narrow so 12 inches over about 5x5?

2 tons converts to about an area of 8x8 feet covered by 12 inches of water. Now, if we only knew how much does a cubic centimeter of pigeon guano weight.
