Laying the foundations
Take a look at the latest progress – above and below ground – as work on The Postal Museum presses ahead…
Things are moving fast down in Mail Rail. The Manager’s Office – which Dan Snow began removing last month – has now completely gone, and the welding shed and stairs have made way too. Some of the most exciting work is happening on the track, getting the rails ready for intrepid visitors to ride.
Up above, the ground around Calthorpe House is clear and the ‘piles’ – supports driven deep into the ground to give strong foundations – are now in place. Soon to be buried out of sight, they will play an important role bolstering the archive above for years to come.
Inside, the space looks calm and empty – a blank canvas for our exhibitions to fill with stories as the year progresses.
