We’ve had a resident pigeon nesting in the light tower and noticed a couple of weeks ago that she was sitting on some eggs – this week they’ve hatched!
We’re surprised of her choice of location considering all of the works that have been going on around her but are happy to host the new little family until they’re ready to fledge. We’ve put some protection around the nest and will try to keep the noise down… though they seem very happy and we think they must like it!
It’s all about windows and doorways this week. Frank Hall & Sons have now cut the hole for the door that will connect the upper saloon to the helical staircase. The helical staircase will, we hope, be installed this winter if we can raise the required funds.
This week the new windows for the upper saloon were fitted! Ten double glazed toughened glass panels arrived and were quickly set in place and they look fantastic. The preparation work is continuing for the light tower glazing that will look amazing. Once the scaffolding is down the tower will be templated so that the glass can be ordered.
