Brett, the stone mason, has finished carving the gargoyle. For pictures of the first day of carving please click here.
In the pictures below the lime mortar in the joins is fresh and has not had time to dry. It will dry to the colour of limestone and the join will be very hard to see. We will post a picture in a few days once the mortar has had time to dry out.
The underneath join tapers into the tower wall – it is not a sharp angle. The next picture shows the join on the old side.
Roger and Will are continuing with work on the tower including further work on the sound openings and inside the tower and bell chamber.
Will has repaired the damaged “chequer board”, an example is shown below.
Many thanks to Roger, Will and Brett for their help.
