Many thanks to my builder and "man with tele-handler" for securing the remaining parts of the (largely collapsed) oriel window. This has recently been achieved using an ingenious cantilevered wooden structure which fits nicely into existing holes in the masonry, thus acting as convenient sockets. It is good to see work progressing externally even in the current snowy and chilly conditions.

  1. This is a wonderful sight to see.. Well done and under the circumstances consider it a miracle!

  2. Andy is a star! It is bloody cold up here and today it has been blowing a blizzrd all day...
