Tom Addyman and John Sanders (our outstanding standing building experts) have all they need to complete that report and specific recommendations for repairs/consolidation. Fiona and David still have a few below water points to collect on the survey, and we hope to get a great 3D model of the cellar to merge in with the model David developed from the March 2015 photographs. Of course, it will still take some time and effort to compile the final report for Historic Scotland.
Next steps: An additional Scheduled Monument Consent application for signage, consolidation/repairs, and, perhaps, some exploratory trenches. If you have suggestions for designs for the signage and kiosk, please do send your thoughts to us.
We lost almost a year to the heavy rain. The Good Friday expedition got the building experts to site and we hope the September trip will finally let us complete goals from the second SMC. Then ... onward to SMC 3!
Thanks for your support!
