Work in progress

 Work goes on a pace in the New Turnip House here's some pics of what we've been doing

ready to dig up the concrete

a hint of things beneath

underneath the concrete, and 3 inches of stones, appeared a beautiful red brick floor!

bricks worn rounded by years of traffic 

the roof truss, supported originally by a low header

old wood taken out - must have been reused from somewhere else

hand tooled fixings - no idea what this was!
The new brick support
header and stone in place

the bottom of the pillar - no foundations!

the entrance window before
new slate window sill in the entrance window

hand wrought gutter supports

and when you look up .....
