Spike - close up of face (R-S-D)
A couple of weeks ago Christine and I went to Castle Drogo. We were fairly lucky with the weather, so that was a bonus.

The house had a few things packed away as they were in the middle of a 6 year project to repair the roof ... by removing the old one, replacing it, and then placing another "roof" on top to protect it. I took a deap breath and went up to see the work -

What an interesting place. The roof project looks fascinating - and I'd be fine going up to look as long as I couldn't see the ground!

Sorry for the delay in replying

The roof project has taken a long time, but will be worth it. I will admit that I have a new camera that has a swivel view-finder if needed, and that way I can see the view without having to go week at the knees!
