The completed roof structure of W. Smith’s Chemist and Photographers’

After many weeks of hard work Shaun, Dan and Keith have finished the timber roof structure, complete with the curves and twists that mimic the roof of the building we are copying on Elvet Bridge in Durham. There is still much more to do before we can start on the interior of the shop. Paul and Cos need to build the building’s gable peaks and chimneys and the roof needs to be covered with reclaimed slates.

Even in these chilly mornings, the Buildings Team are busy at work! The church chimneys for the vestry fireplace and nave stove are nearly complete – one of the handmade chimney pots is already in place.

The glazing in the nave is now also complete and work has begun on the foundations for the church yard wall.
