midsomer norton developments
These are now historical shots! Work is now truly under way on rebuilding Midsomer Norton's iconic greenhouse, the back and front brickwork is now just about finished, the remainder is woodwork and glazing. Not quite sure if the local vandals are going to give the restored greenhouse the respect it deserves, but no doubt there's a hi-def video camera or two pointing at it! I had hoped myself to get involved in this rebuilding but events (particularly the New S&D) sadly overtook me. I'd even taken a bricklaying course to give me the skills but if the partially rebuilt garden wall at home is anything to go by MN probably had a lucky escape!
The other big development is that the museum was officially opened today, at 11am. I had hoped to put an announcement on the blog in advance but was snowed under with other work.
Is there anyone out there who is able to supply copy and photos from Midsomer Norton - I'd be most grateful for a regular contributor as I can't get down there very often these days. The shots above were from my last trip there nearly a year ago! There are excellent shots of the greenhouse rebuilding here.
