Members of the Trust have been busy this week replacing the old and rotting timbers supporting the tiled roof to the cottage extension.
Erected in the latter half of the 20th century, the extension’s roof has been prone to leaks for some time and was visibly sagging in places. Les Mitchell, Dave Start and Dave Mason removed the tiles and underfelt to reveal the extent of the problem.
New joist ends have been cut and bolted on, wall rails repaired and two new joists fitted. New underfelt has been fitted and the roof battens replaced with new. The tiles have been cleaned and will be in place by the end of this week.
