At Longleat House for the amazing SkySafari. ...We watched the balloons whilst Blake played with Henry!
Today we successfully lowered and re raised the Longleat House Chandelier for a clean... and didn’t drop it!
A short video to follow up yesterday’s photo of the weathercock going back on. Climbing up and above the last stone is always a strange feeling! Dave below is cracking on with the cover meter survey to the spire stonework. 👌🏽
Cloud cover... finally, we can get on with some proper work at the very top of the spire!
I’d like to say we’re enjoying this weather... but we’re fighting over who gets the shady side of the spire! 🌞
After re visiting Hardy’s Monument last week... reminded me of this photo taken of me a few years ago. ....which took ages to find on my computer!
#Repost @sshconservation ・・・ Hello, My name is Aaron. I’m 15 years old and from Bishop Wand School, Sunbury-on-Thames. I’m doing my work experience week with SSHC to learn more about Stonemasonry and historic building conservation. I will be posting a few images this week showing places I get to visit and things I learn whilst with SSHC.
Setting up for the North Portico of Mansion House at 5:30am on a Saturday morning! ...No Banking folk around to drop things on 👌🏽👍🏽
Our survey of Mansion House continues... with views of another one of Wrens Baroque London Churches. Annnnnd.. St Stephen Walbrook has John Vanbrugh buried there... who was the architect that designed Blenheim Palace. 👌🏽
A very decorative cornice at Mansion House. Still looking great after all these years.. Built mid 18thC!
