Supplementary Wednesday 6th April 2016

Dear all
 
Geoff and John are pictured sealing the window apertures of the new Booking Hall pending delivery of the finished windows in a couple of weeks. The progress made in the last three days is quite staggering and a tremendous credit to the team involved. The second photo shows the Bishop's stumps! The three very large trees above Duffield Tunnel have been taken down and, speaking to the Bishop's gardener, a ring count showed they were of the order of 115 years old.
 
The video shows Duffield in sunshine and whilst admiring the Bishop's stumps a sharp hailstorm pounded the 1412 Duffield to Wirksworth service - filming does have its risks.
