Superweek day 3

Too busy to blog yesterday...
The second milestone for the week...The old boiler is out, thanks to our friends at B&D Cranes and our expert preparation. There was however a spanner in the works, literally.... there was some resistance at the firebox end which turned out to be an 1 1/4" railway fitters spanner that had been dropped down between the outer wrapper and the frame many years ago.
