Demolition continued

We continued to remove the thatch from the remaining two buildings to expose the frames so that we could begin to dismantle them. While this was being done we also cut through the rafters on building 851 before pulling the whole roof from the walls.

This was then tidied away while we started to cut through the walls on building 547, once we had removed the section of chalk daub. The roof was the next to be demolished with the rafters and stakes separated from the small pieces of hazel left over from the walls.

Finally we demolished building 848. This was the most straight forward building to demolish as we cut out one panel before cutting through the ringbeams from the top down.

Again, a big thanks to our volunteers who came to help dismantle all that they had built.
