The Roof is now almost complete with the addition of the ridge tiles, specially made to fit the angle of the roof. The scaffolding has gone and you can now see what an impressive building it is. This is all down to a lot of hard work by volunteers and contractors and fundraisers. So many many thanks to you all.

There are a several prospective maritime trades tenants awaiting for availability of the workshops. This the first phase of the project and is vital to start the activity in the building and of course improving our revenue. Once these trades are settled, then they should be able to take on apprentices.
Just a reminder of where we started from, a few pics of what it was like;
We have stripped both roofs and rebuilt, and repointed the end gables and turrets, All the windows have been unboarded, the cast iron frames stripped and repainted, and temporarily glazed with polycarbonate until we have the funds to
glaze them with new internal frames, leaving the original frames on view. The gutters and downpipes have also to be replaced. There are some structural alterations needed to improve access from the yard. This will be needed until the Bridge is opened allowing us to bring in barges and lighters with materials.
