Whittles are now on holiday until 3rd January and their ground works subcontractors Pyes have taken a slightly longer break, and will be returning later that week.
So before I switch the computer off for Christmas(?) here are a few photos of where work was up to this afternoon...
|Terrace C foundations are underway. The black pipes sticking up are for the district heating. Note also that the guard rails along the river bank have been fitted over the past couple of days.|
|This is the gable end of building 2, where the guest rooms will be. |
We were hoping to reuse the wall that was here but it ended up having to be rebuilt.
|Looking up Forgebank Walk from outside plot 10 (no 14)|
|The attenuation pipe is finally in on terrace D. No more pecking away at rock thankfully. There is a manhole still to go in outside plot 17 (no 21)|
