THE SQUARE TOWER, PORTSMOUTH, HAMPSHIRE.
SQUARE TOWER BUILDING WORKS: ALMOST FINISHED!
Yes: The building work has nearly finished!
The big scaffolding and roof that has dominated the outside of the Tower this year has finally gone and has been replaced by one small scaffolding section by the sea-walls.
The large compound the builders used to store their materials has been repositioned further from the Tower and has been made smaller.
The stone masons are now finishing the stone floor on the roof; and it looks absolutely stunning already...
If anyone has any concerns, questions or worries about the work, please call me Steve Hender on the main phone number 07519 505785 or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
