June Update

Works to repair the timber frame have now commenced - and eagle eyed locals may have noticed the construction of a timber framing yard having been built adjacent to the Old Barn in St. Katherines Car Park.

The process to repair the frame is time consuming and is being undertaken by Splitlath a specialist in restoration of historic building. It will take until Spring next year before the frame is fully repaired  - which in turn will allow the roof to be replaced and allow the scaffolding to come down.

The white render that covered the building has now been removed and the brickwork behind will be refaced.

Whilst it will be difficult to see the building taking shape during that time as it is well hidden behind the hoardings and scaffolding - we will continue to update this blog regularly with photos to show off the works in progress. We have even cut some viewing holes in the hoarding so you can have a look to see the framers at work!
