Repair work has mostly taken place on budget and to schedule.
Some additional costs have been incurred: the bellcote was found to be in dangerous condition (ie, liable to fall!) and hence it required considerable repair and new stonework.
The old lead has been recast and augmented and is currently being laid. Unfortunately, the highly skilled lead layer assigned to the work suffered a motorbike accident the week prior which slightly delayed works. We are glad to report he is recovering from his accident!
