The exact replica of the original shop front of the building that we are copying from Elvet Bridge in Durham is under way. As you can see they have so far completed the fluted pilasters which will support the nearly completed corbels. The shop front windows have also been finished and they are currently working on making the moulded rails and stiles, as well as the frames, for the front doors.

At the site Paul and Cos are nearly at the level of the first floor and are about to install the steel lintels that will support the opening for the glass house at rear of the building, as well as the openings along the shop front.
