The base grillage of the bell frame of this 12 cwt Taylor eight have deteriorated badly with corrosion where the beams entered the tower walls. The beam ends will be exposed by removing the grouting. The beam ends will be removed and new extension RSJ beams will be spliced to secure the frame properly. The new ends will be treated to protect them before they are re-grouted into the tower walls.

Update

  • Work has been completed.

Phil Morse from Callington has written:- "Just to let you know that Carl completed our work at St Mary's this afternoon. Thanks very much to you for the support you have given. We can hardly believe that it's all been done so quickly."
