The Crypt suffered a significant flood on the 17th June 2016 resulting in standing water over much of the floor. The Cathedral Architect, John Bailey, instructed the Perry Lithgow Partnership to undertake an outline condition assessment of the Crypt wall paintings to serve as a baseline when monitoring for deterioration over the next few months as the building fabric dries out. Richard Lithgow and Mark Perry visited the cathedral on 24 June to undertake the condition assessment which involved inspecting and photographing all areas of painting and plaster treated during Phase 1 as well as the areas treated previously (during interventions in the 1980s and 1990s).
