Terraces 037 Wm[1]


We haven’t really revisited the terraces since all the moving and shaking I did last year so I thought you might be interested to see how they are looking now. There are still a few gaps. And there’s not much going on at the far end. But I’m leaving that bit for now, for reasons that will become obvious in the next week or so.
