This club on the Terrace has been finished (see Diary 9 July). Dean and Jonathan, the experts who have been working on the cobbles, decided to lay half of them in a loose setting and half in a tight setting to marry in with all the other designs on the Terrace. It was a pleasure to watch them working in unison, taking it in turns to lay a cobble in lime and damp sand and ease it in with a rubber hammer. Very precise and intricate work.
They are now working on the rest of the Terrace. A joy to watch, I wonder if they need a volunteer assistant.
