News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

The foundation work was due to be done in December, this has now been delayed until mid January and is expected to take 4 weeks.

I used to work for the company who supplied that equipment,
It's good that they are starting work, Although could always be temporary to prevent further damage while they put out tenders for it.

Up until yesterday (and for the past 11 months, since the council closed the building to the public) the wall has been gradually falling outwards and has been un-supported. The supports were put in yesterday (23/09/09) to prevent any further movement , hopefully the repair work will start soon.

Karlostg, are the pictures demonstrating that repair work has begun or that it needs to get started urgently?
