Summer frenzy

Despite the oppressive heat of our British summer (last Tuesday if you missed it) work continued on site fuelled by steely determination, a can-do attitude, doughnuts and ice creams (thank you Martin!).

Terry’s first window is in on the Roman building, the outer layers of cob are being patched up under Adrian’s guidance and the march of the shingles continues.

Incidentally, Brahms composed a ‘March of the Shingles’ in 1862 but it was only played once, in Bremen. On that occasion the concert hall sadly burnt down, the March was deemed to be unlucky and was never played again. It is not mentioned in any works on Brahms for the same reason, so don’t try looking it up on Google. Other search engines are available.
