A group of enthusiastic King’s College students recently visited the Bodley’s Court renovation project in Cambridge.

The students were given a tour of the site, where the owner of specialist roofing company Claude N. Smith Ltd gave a talk about the Collyweston slate and the modern processes that will see the new roof last c.200 years.

The students are pictured next to one of the chimneys, which will have masonry repairs as part of the project.
