Work in Progress
At last, Building Site Greenwich seems to be reaping at least some rewards. The wraps are off the restored cherubs at St Alfege Church (jury still out on that one, I couldn’t get a good enough look as the workmen were still taking down the boards when I was there but I’m a little worried).
The bit that we’ve got so used to there being just a narrow alleyway between the ship and the houses that it’s hard to remember it being open once is now a little more cramped as beds are going in there too:
Hope the sides are going to be a bit more interesting than breeze blocks…
At the other end, the wraps are still on the foot tunnel domes at both ends, but there surely has to be progress on them now?
As for the Cutty Sark herself, well I was last there on Wednesday and my photos are already out of date. The rigging crew are working like mad at the moment
so the last pics are cheats – taken by Rod, who has the pleasure of seeing it all happen every day from the comfort of his own home.
I’m telling you – it’s tall up there now:
But at last it seems everything’s coming together. The new architectural school on the Stockwell Street site is taking its time – but to be fair they did start after everyone else and do proper archaeology and everything.
Now, if only the ‘Heart of East Greenwich’ could take some notes…
