With each day’s work in the confectionery room next to the ice well, more mysteries come to light! This week, Jerry and Michael have revealed two more arches in the brickwork – an inverted arch, under a recess, and a dinky little arch at floor level, which we’re considering may have been an oven. If anyone has any thoughts on this intriguing matter, please get in touch – we’re all ears!
