After hours of careful preparation removing the old steps, the first of the new ones at the Chapter House entrance is in place, (the second about to be carefully lifted into position), while outside the new path lights are being installed and the old floodlights, now redundant, are being removed. An incredible 9 tonnes of ballast and 100 bags of cement were used to create bases for the attractive new lamps which will also light up the Minster at night. The grounds may still look like a building site, with fencing and trenches, but at last we begin to see the transformation taking shape both inside and out!
