8th February update
The biggest changes have so far been down on basement level. The area where the lift is being installed is being closed off and the carpenters have come in to install a wooden frame ‘crash deck’ around the area where the lift is being installed for health and safety. You can see this happening in the last two photos in this news update.
Also the mezzanine area outside the east wall is now being dug up in preparation for the new Hall extension. Partition walls are beginning in the basement and the path in the graveyard is being covered up. Over the next two weeks a lot more will be going on with the scaffolding coming down in the main hall and shortly afterwards the floor in the hall will be knocked through.
