Can’t think what’s prompted the NMM to give the Queen’s House a spruce up, but hey, I’m not complaining. Stephen tells me that a few stones need lifting and replacing but this is really just a general spit-and-polish before the Big Year of Olympic-Jubileeness.
The guy Stephen spoke to told him that after this it won’t need any work doing for twenty years, which is probably a good thing since post 2012 I can’t see anything being done to anything for somewhat longer than that.
When they’ve finished there, they’re moving onto the NMM building itself. I wonder if they could be persuaded to move their scaff and paint pots to the Trafalgar Tavern? It’s looking particularly flaky just now, though I daresay the weeds growing out of the gutter could be argued as being a ‘green roof.’
