Roll 'Up' the Barrel

(Updated 8:28am 22nd August 2012)

An original feature of the recently re-thatched Palmers Brewery Roof in Bridport has had to be re-created.

During the restoration, workmen discovered the original hand carved stone barrel finial was cracked and beyond repair.

Fortunately an exact copy was commissioned from a firm in Yeovil.

Once returned to Palmers it was a case of  'roll UP the barrel...up  a long ladder and back onto the roof!
