24/11 - The stones for the top of the central pier are manoeuvred into place.

The stone pictured on the left weighs nearly 3 tonnes


24/11 - The stone is lifted into position by the crane and fixed in place using a mix of ground stone and hydraulic lime with no cement - similar to the original construction.


26/11 The central pier, now complete. Preparations are made to start building the arches.

The first course will be pinned to the existing stone with stainless steel pins for added strength.
