Weybourne candelabra revisited 

Today I dropped in to Weybourne church to see the candelabra I designed recently. The metalwork was done by local master Brian Turner (http://www.turners-lead-collection.co.uk/). His approach was to make every little detail by hand, and the overall effect is great. The light was good today so I got some better pictures.

Stairway to heaven?

We installed a stone today in Sea Palling, Norfolk, and on the way back to the workshop stopped at Worstead church to check it out. It was a nice church with lots of interesting memorials and floor plaques. The thing that stood out to me however was this amazing ladder. It stood like a modern art installation. Check out these pictures….

3 stones, 3 counties

We’ve been on the road recently, taking a Westmorland slate memorial to Lincolnshire,  a York stone memorial to East Sussex,  and a Welsh slate memorial to Surrey. The last two we installed today in one trip. It was a long day, the hottest of the year, and the digging was hard. The slate for Richmond cemetery was quite a challenge as we had to dig a huge hole to accommodate a pre-contract concrete shoe. The soil was so hard we had to drive the fork into the solid ground using a heavy sledgehammer. See below
