The Steelyard Weighing Machine


Steelyard Weighing Machine

With the help of a grant from East Cambridgeshire District Council, which funded 40 per cent of the total cost of the renovations. Mr & Mrs Hall-Smith, gave the go-ahead for contractors to begin work on the building's restoration at the end of October 2001 and it took around five weeks to complete. The painstaking restoration work included replacing roof tiles, restoring much of the wood panelling along the sides of the building and decorating the wood in black and white to return it to its former glory.

The work cost several thousand pounds to complete as many of the authentic materials needed were very old and rare and could not be mass produced, such as the roof tiles which are hand-made. Mr & Mrs Hall-Smith said the building looks much better and will probably attract even more interest from tourists who can regularly be seen taking photographs of it.
