Scaffolding Completion & Roof Removal

Despite regular snow fall throughout its erection the scaffolding was completed at the end of March as planned. The building has now been enshrouded in a large tent like canopy to keep the building weather tight while it is opened up.

Since the start of April further strip out works have commenced and the roof coverings have now been removed.

The process was undertaken under license by Natural England and was done under the watchful view of an Ecologist (no bats were found!) - will ultimately allow the removal of sections of the medieval frame for repair.

A winch has been installed as part of the scaffold structure to enable the lifting of new sections of oak.

As the building comes apart the extent and beauty of the Medieval building is really starting to be revealed. The site has recently had much interest from local groups with members of Cradley WI, the Association of Environmentally Conscious Builders and Herefordshire Technology College all visiting in the past 2 weeks.
