Cornice failure

The top of the cornice with the scaffolding in place. It looks very fragile, but is judged to be okay. Once the scaffolding was moved though it was clear that a 6 metre length had come away from the wall.

   

The scaffolding was adjusted to allow access to the cornice for repair.

 

The old wood inside the cornice moulding was rotten and could no longer support it.
