Work commences Saturday 23rd January 1988
The first thing to go was the garage, which was on the point of falling down.
This gave access to the rear of the building so that tons of cotswold stone could be delivered to create the base for the new car park and give the contractors space in which to work.

The wall beginning to take shape, it is stabilised by infilling with the Cotswold stone because of the gradient on the garden going down to the River Chelt the size and depth of the car park was limited.
Stone infilling, then further layers were added up to the final height
