The lantern is nearly finished!

The lantern frame has been re-installed and most of the glass fitted.
Originally the frame was fixed together with nails that over time had
become badly rusted.  Not surprising after nearly 140 years!  To ensure
the structure is now stable the main timbers have been fixed together
using stainless bolts and screws.  There are a few small items still to
be done and we are looking forward to seeing the scaffold removed.
