The three windows on the car park side are going in. They are made of PVC.
The B&S team have been busy - not with the visitor centre, which is being erected by contractors - but with repainting and repairing the end wall of the Flag and Whistle building in Toddington. It's a big job.
The south side is pretty much finished now. It's now in a very shiny chocolate colour.
Mike and Pete admire their work.
This is the side the customer doesn't usually see - it's the door to the boardroom!
It's been painted to the same high standard.
There are still a lot of odd bits to do, such as the window surrounds, a new surround for the new boardroom door, and new barge boards. We may also need a new lock for the door, as the old one refuses to work.
Finally, further inspection has revealed several areas of wood rot in the the south side of the north porch. This will need replacing too.
The gang have also helped with the construction of a foot crossing north of Laverton, which was quite a big job. You can see pictures of this on Andy P's drainage department Flickr site:
Two posts and so-called granpa posts of concrete, which sit in the ground and hold the wooden posts up, away from any water, were also found and painted. They are now in situ at Hayles Abbey, waiting for the running in board to be mounted on them.
The right hand one is taller than the left hand one, because it will have a hook on top to hold a hurricane lamp.
You can see the grey 'granpa' posts underneath. They will help to conserve the wooden posts, which also received little hats of lead to keep the rain off the top.
Finally, upon a request from the Hayles group, one more wooden post and 'granpa' support were supplied by the B&S gang.
This will become the second lamp post at Hayles, to be situated at the bottom of the ramp.
