New roof completed

Our new roof was finally completed last week, so no random drips any more! We’ve also had more skylights fitted on the west elevation meaning more natural light.


Below you can see the building in its original form – with half the roof being glass. It must have been lovely and bright but I suspect a bit hot for hauling exercises in summer! As you can see, as well as being used as a drill hall, the building was also used to host formal dinners for the regiment. At one time it was even used to stage a circus complete with performing seals and ‘highly educated elephants’!
