Site Progress - July | Windermere Jetty

Site Progress - July

This month, the project will reach a number of milestones. With much of the building's structure complete, work can begin on the external landscaping, beginning with the area surrounding the entrance. In addition, the decking to the cafe terrace will be completed by the end of the month. The terrace area extends from the cafe and will provide a scenically stunning location on the lakeshore to enjoy locally sourced, homemade food and drink.
   
Internally, the wooden panelling in the main museum building is complete, giving the spaces a high quality wood finish.
   
Conservation continues to preserve and restore the boats of the Windermere Jetty collection. Osprey, a 1902 Steam Launch, has needed extensive restoration from a long life in service, which has included restoration to her boiler. The work to the boiler is now complete and so it will be installed and tested in situ in the workshop this month.
