Building works

So, what news? We have had some building work done, some roofing. Out with the old slate tiles, in with the new (although we kept three of the old slate ones in the cellar to show the grandchildren one day). Whilst the builders were pulling off the old roof, they found a rather alarming pile of bricks where part of our chimney had collapsed.

And this led to the entire chimney being removed. Here’s how big it was, in the foreground…

And it ended up basically filling the skip. To think that could have tumbled on our heads whilst we were in the kitchen. Joy.
