Winchester Cathedral

We had much excitement at work today!! The presbytery roof has needed repairs for a long time and with Lottery funding, the work is under-way at last. (Have a look at their website for more details.)
For several weeks a large "archway" of scaffolding has been erected on the ground and today it was being hoisted piece by piece onto the roof. It should have all happened yesterday but there was a delay which was quite lucky really as today brought clear blue skies, rather than heavy mist...

I was hoping to be able to insert a slideshow into the side bar but it won't I'll have to make do with inserting a whole load of photos - sorry, there's rather a lot! Click on the first one and you should then be able to cycle through them quite quickly. It almost looks like time lapse photography.

The work will take at least 2 years but hopefully, once complete, the roof will last 200 years. There's lots to see at the cathedral and it's well worth a visit if you're in the area.
