Just over a fortnight into the project and already one can see the extent of the demolition that must first take place before any rebuilding work can begin. Thus far the central wall and about 60% of the southern wall have been taken down. Two men working with hammer and chisel have achieved all this and it has of course added to the mountain of rubble, which will subsequently have to be removed from the site. Much of the stone will be reused during reconstruction and that is being carefully laid aside for the stonemasons.
