Looking up at St. Paul’s!
With the steel work and deck now complete for the mezzanine floor things really are looking up at St. Paul’s! On the day the Blogging Team visited the first of the glass balustrade sections was being installed and the view across the church really is spectacular.
Beneath the mezzanine floor all the (surprisingly spacious) rooms are now formed and first fix M&E is well underway.
The breakthrough into the vestry through the 1 metre thick wall is complete and the steel is in place for the new doorway.
Works have revealed what looks to be faced stones dating back to the Saxon church originally on the same site. Some even have inscriptions on and what appear to be stone mason scoring marks.
An archaeologist is visiting the site shortly to help shed light on these interesting stone carvings.
The next few weeks are sure to be busy with a multitude of specialists working at St. Paul’s including stained glass technicians, stone masons and diamond drillers. Needless to say the Blogging Team are eagerly awaiting their next visit!
