Steve Roberts dropped by this afternoon - jober as a sudge. Between us we were able to manhandle the six A frames for the garage workshop into three piles of two, enabling close scrutiny. The main problem with them is not rot - it is contraction of the wood which has loosened the joints - easily remediable. Joiner Dave Richardson will rebuild one A frame and I shall use it as a template for the rest.
Earlier we had an enjoyable visit from The Restoration People - a group of Restoration wizards from York led by the formidable Imelda Havers. See http://www.restoration-people.com/ Imelda, along with architect Geoffrey Holland, heritage expert Carolyn Lloyd Brown and Project manager Richard Schofield cast an eye over the water tower and bought us lunch at The Lion http://thelionsettle.co.uk/ A delightful day.
