It seem that the availability of the footings creates a great opportunity to construct a replica building on the existing foundations, which I am sure is do-able, using latest building technologies to satisfy planning regulations. It would probably be very cost effective too! (Just one layman's opinion though!)
Other work completed included the construction of a style to reach the electricity supply box (picture to follow) and the start of the construction of a new wooden fence to replace the the rotten one removed from the old fence line (pictures to follow). Concerns were expressed about how stark and building site-ish the plot looks at the moment. This will improve as new fences appear and rubble removed.
Finally, a few "thank yous" . Firstly to John Stretton, who I commandeered to take some photos for me, and second to the "The Old Station House" for supply of hot water for the vital cup of tea
