We are anxious to also proceed asap with the outer shell of the boiler – see attached for progress report Boiler Progress July 18
October 2018 – At last we have a welded handrail. As its a little over 6m long its a good job someone has a suitable boat trailer! Next job is to get it down to Hickling and hot work the two corners. Then a spray coat of black, mount the chimney and stand back to admire the view. Handrail fitted on 23rd October!
