July 2018

George and the van
George and the van

Here we are, at the beginning of July. I visited Broadlands on Friday, collected some photographs from Suzanne and took a few of my own, so now I can provide the rebuild story so far, with illustrations!

First, though, let me show you George. During the rebuild, he looked out of his stable to be faced by one of the workmen's vans. This was understandably confusing, but he has seen a lot of action since the start of the work. I suspect he heaved a sigh and decided that this was harmless.

After scraping away the old surface, the crew needed to lay down a solid secure surface on which the vehicles that would be used to remove the old roof would rest. The resulting pile of material was heaped on a giant tarpaulin after the old surface had been taken away. You can see the old moss-covered asbestos roof in the background.

Next is the lift, hoisting one of the workmen wearing protective gear, ready to begin removal. This removal had to go slowly to ensure full safety. Then a new steel framework was erected to replace the old one which, although strong enough to hold up the old roof, was showing significant signs of age.

To guard the new frame, workmen now needed to paint it; a slow and laborious but essential stage.

And finally, the new roof is on, although just the riding area. Preparation has started for the new hay barn and viewing gallery although we do need more funds to finish this work along with the wheelchair accessible viewing gallery. In the meantime, once the new lights have been erected in the new roof, the school itself will shortly be ready for use, just in time for the Open Day on Saturday, 7th July.
