It's a Cold and Wet Job

It's a bit wet and cold of mornings these days. So when most of us get to the Museum on a Tuesday, it is a case of getting inside quick to get the heaters on.

Not George and Martin though.


It really takes a special sort to be out at 9.30am on a cold and wet winter morning, washing down concrete and brickwork.


We don't know how long since it has been done (and our ancestors definitely didn't have pressure washers), but the mould and grime is gone, and the the colour in our sandstone footings is just beautiful.

PS At last reports, they didn't find the foundation stone under the grime, either. But we didn't really expect it then, did we?
