Finally managed to deliver the oak settle, and it looks fantastic in it’s new home. The narrow alleyway we intended to carry it along was unfortunately locked, with no key holder to be found. It was quite an effort to carry it along an alternative route – a narrow crumbling path on a steep slope, over 3 fences and through a hedge. Only crocodiles snapping at our ankles would have made it more treacherous! Thanks to Sam, Noel and Jeff for helping.
