New Building: Week 24 - Higher and higher

We start with a view of the top floor at the beginning of last week.

By the end of the week, the walls were nearly finished, and the first of the beams to support the roof were in place.

The bricklayers have moved on to what used to be the old staircase of the Parish centre. There were some pictures of this being taken out at the beginning of the building work. Now the outer wall is being rebuilt in a straight line, closer to the fence. The new staircase will end at a new front door, separate from the entrance to the Parish centre, which will give the fathers access to their bedrooms.

The lift shaft continues to grow. Here it is half-way up the first floor.

And to finish, a view of the Radcliffe Observatory from the roof level.
