The internal scaffold has been removed and brick supports have been installed for the gantry legs as a temporary support until more funding can be provided. The gantry still needs work around the footings which will form part of the internal structure around the well-head.
With only minor jobs to finish, the external scaffold will soon come down. The roof is now water-tight and the gantry has had some metal straps and plates fixed. So all looks in great shape - a distinct improvement over the state of the monument before work started..
