Chimney restoration finished

Glyn finished off rebuilding the cottage chimney yesterday.  It turned out to need more work than he expected.

This is how it looks now.

This shows the state it was in before he started.  There's some work in progress photos in this earlier blog post.

He scratched our names and the date into the lead flashing, to go with the previous names and dates from what was probably the last restoration in 1968.  Hope his work lasts longer than that!

The cottage is starting to look a lot better since we started its makeover a few years ago.  Just have to get the inside done now.
