Day 3 – more stones and joists appear

Day 3 August 14th Lance and the beams 2

Here is Lance having put up some of the joists in the tower base which will hold up the new ringers floor. This was all done today as work to finish excavating the tower floor had to stop for the DAC to come out and assess the carved stones which have been found buried in the tower base floor.

Day 3 - August 14th - tower floor half excavated

Half of the floor excavated – and the stones found taken outside. They will have to be photographed before maybe being put back in the tower base floor to preserve them. They may tell us a lot about a previous portion of building on site as there are pieces of window masony and other sections of stone.

Day 3 - August 14th - stones outside

Who carved them? Where did they reside? Date? We will probably never know….

No work till Monday now….. and worship on Sunday will have to be in the chancel with the bats. Bless them! ( Not) They are so messy at the moment.
