Those of you who have visited the Hall since Christmas will have noticed an unsightly brown stain on the stonework on the eastern side of the Hall.

Unfortunately the downpipe on this wall has become blocked and the very heavy rain before Christmas leaked through to the walls. We first noticed a pool of water in the Office and then spotted that there had been some damage to the panelling inside the Hall.

At this stage, we don't think that it is too serious but we have erected scaffolding to enable engineers to find out exactly what's wrong and to put it right. We have spoken to our Insurance Company and there is a possibility that the costs will be covered. If not, I am sure that it won't break the bank!

Here is a photo of the scaffolding being erected today.
