Update for the 19th June, 2020

If you have strolled passed The Swan this week you will have seen that lots of work has been happening with The Coach House. Our local resident Brendan O’Reilly and his team from Jayflex have been in and achieved so much already. Very quickly this happened ...

The scaffold is up, skips are in the yard and the roof is off!

By stripping back the frame work it has become clear what is required to make the structure safe. There was bowing in the ridge of the roof and crumbling walls high up.
