If you are interested in historic structures and their restoration and repair - then do go and look at work just started in Myddleton Road on the New River Tunnel entrance of 1850.
It has been badly neglected for many years, and they have had to remove the coping stones and take down portions of the walls etc. They are saving the bricks and doing the job to English Heritage Standards. It will be worth popping in to look at work as it progresses. It should look lovely when they have finished it all. The whole job is set to last 8 weeks.
The two main contracted bricklayers - who have a lot of experience with ancient brickwork repairs - come from Cambridge. They are looking for 2 rooms for the next 2 weeks - only Monday to Friday - no meals as they are out all day. If you can help, do contact Bob on 0753 202 1225 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
There cant be many listed building repair jobs like this. Dont miss it!
Let's all have a party for the Tunnel when the work is done.
(oh - and there are excellent blackberries along the New River Path)
