My Mum has been asking why Roger has been banging a hole in the wall. I suppose banging a hole in the wall is not strictly accurate, more like chipping the cement out between the stones. At some point in the past the pointing had been done with cement instead of lime and then covered with paint. While we are waiting for the sand blasting to be done, hopefully at the end of September, Roger thought he’d start chipping away. It’s going to be a long job but it will be worth it in the end. He says his arms are hanging already. Not a job to be done every day.
