Following on from a successful grant application to Charles Burnett 111 we are now preparing four window openings for new windows. The “gaps” were temporarily filled with timber and plastic sheeting to keep the rain out, these have been removed to allow us to prepare the window bars for painting and carry out a few stone repairs. The estimated lead in time to have these bespoke windows made is 23 weeks, so hopefully they will be in, painted and weather tight before winter.

In the mean time concrete and gully work carries on at the western gun/road position, one side of the road is completed with new gully stone the entire length, another 15 to cast and fit or the other side of the road.

We are also now keeping our fingers crossed as our HLF grant application is in and waiting for an answer later this year.
