19th July - Internal ceiling supports.
Most people when we mention caves are worried about being trapped if the roof should collapse, a somewhat unfounded concern considering many caves have been around for hundreds of years. To counter this, and to be honest for visual appeal, we are having supports, known as vegas, fitted in the longer rooms. The skylight has also had a surround built to stop the chance of anything accidentally falling through it. These little security features, although not totally necessary, show the degree of care taken when renovating a cave for modern living requirements.
