Initial joinery samples for the new joinery were reviewed on site to compare them with the various tones of the existing screens. The intention is to match the existing joinery in tone and grain sufficiently closely for each piece of the adapted joinery to feel of a piece, but to make it clear, on close inspection, what is new and what is older. Not quite right, either in tone or grain, so comments given to NHR Joinery so they can make revised samples

Joinery dismantling making progress, with the cathedra (the Bishops seat in the cathedral) being moved in its constituent parts to its temporary home in the west of the cathedral, the chancel screen being dismantled from the top.
