Here are some views of the Fish and Chip shop, now that the snow has (to some extent!) cleared and enabled work to proceed. The brickwork seen is the main building, where the preparation and frying take place, while the breeze block structure at right angles will be clad in corrugated iron and be a covered eating area. To the far side of this a lean-to will contain the Berriman’s chip van seen before in this blog and now waiting for collection once we can be certain of some clear weather and have got past the busy Christmas event at the Museum.
Away from the chip shop, original fish shop tiling is being conserved and restored, the three coal fired fryers/ranges (two working, one static) are being restored and Shaun Kay has been producing a large number of wooden framed windows for the building.
We are all eagerly awaiting the first frying (in beef dripping!) in the coal fired ranges!!!
