If there is Swifty I feel sorry for them. I suppose if it was a safety matter they would have to go up. Robert tells me he has reduced the old stack at Pately Bridge near the prefabs, dropped the stone into the flue and capped it. We'd had one go at making the banding safe but it had reached the stage where a proper refurb would have been too expensive.

I had a mate in California who had his own big Cat bulldozer and specialised in creating terraces on hillsides for housing developers. Every morning when he went out to work his wife used to say"Off to rape another poor defenceless hiilside then!"
