Topping out!

The Carpenter’s Fellowship have done a great job of putting the main roof timbers on the Roman and Saxon buildings. The smoke hood of the Saxon hall was topped out with the traditional oak branch. Well done to the Hands on Heritage volunteers for helping with the framing work. Now comes wattle and daub, shakes, imbreces and tegulae. Yes, they were a cult band in the 1970s. Their big hit was “Lets roof together!” which got to number 5 in 1978.
