new brick piece being installed as I type.....

So the piece for Our Lady of the Rosary and St Luke's to give it its correct title has been delivered and being installed as we speak. I have been sent some pictures as the ones I took are not as good as the gentleman, Peter Bowyer who was sent to the roof to take these. I am so pleased they like the work it is always a little nerve racking as the last time they saw it it was brown and green.

There is talk of it being the new area logo and letter heading so I am quite sure they are very pleased. There will be a slight curve on the installation as the wall is curved it is being installed in but constructing it in wet brick with a 19mm curvature was going to cause more trouble than it was worth as the weight of the wet brick is a lot more than when fired. So the cross will be more prominent if it could be. I am awaiting a phone call as we will be discussing mortar colours soon as it will be pointed to match the staining all good stuff. More pics to follow.
