Hi John,

Many thanks for the correction.

That's one definite advantage of being there at the time.

I imagine to other photo in the collection with steel arching will also be Groverake, unless of course there were section in Hope that used steel rather than wood for support?

I'll move the two to their rightful place presently.

Regards Jim
