Current developments

 

With invaluable inputs from Joyce Ainsley, Jeremy Dunhill, and Sue Chambers, recent months have seen major extensions in the ‘Street scenes’ section of the site – in particular regarding coal hole covers, door knockers, fanlights, old street names, and weathervanes.

 

Under guidance from Geoff Downer, work has been in hand for over a year on Cathedral building stones.  For over 30 building stones, this new Section will provide descriptions of the stones, examples of where to find them in the cathedral, and an A/Z index of memorials.  We hope to open this for public viewing around the end of 2019.
