Croome under wraps!

The scaffolding is going to be up for about a year I believe, but it does offer the chance to have a look at the roof !

Certainly a new and different perspective!! I like it!
Bill Phillips: Once the roof is done you won't be able to see the roof up close again

And it gives the opportunity to get an intriguing shot of old & new together
Bill Phillips: It is an impressive bit of scaffolding.

And where are the workers? Fine that you were allowed to climb up the scaffolding ...
Bill Phillips: It was on a Sunday Philine
You pulled this one out of the bag Bill.
Bill Phillips: You make me sound like a bleedin' conjurer

I take your point from yesterday and it is certainly good that they don't keep you at arms length from the restoration.
Bill Phillips: It has been a big change in the NT attitude. When they were doing Tyntesfield, they kept it open so you could see what was happening at the people doing the restoration were happy to answer questions.
Why were you all the way up there?
Bill Phillips: Because I will never get the opportunity again Mary, to see the roof restoration in progress

Bill Phillips: All can go up Alan.
You and Brian have both done a bit of climbing today. Nice perspective from there Bill
Bill Phillips: So I see Janet

An interesting viewpoint Bill.
Bill Phillips: Indeed so Ridge
We've both got rooftop postings today Bill. Did you get handed a dayglo bib and helmet before you went up there?
Bill Phillips: No we were treated as adults grin
Interesting to see what's going on, the leaden sky make a fine backdrop
Bill Phillips: It brightened up later!
I'm surprised they let you up there, Bill! Presumably you had to wear a hard hat!
Bill Phillips: I can't remember but probably

best posting of the day good to see a great slab of metal dominating the composition ...oh just like my posting as well, Billiam.

Bill Phillips: Great Album. We saw them on stage at the time of that album.

I would love to do that, Bill
Bill Phillips: Well you have got about a year before the scaffold comes down Lisl

Makes an interesting shot of contrast between old and modern
Bill Phillips: It does John. I bet they didn't have scaffolding like this when the built the place

This is an excellent NT behaviour, Bill.
Bill Phillips: They are moving with the times and encouraging people to feel welcome
