@33mhz That sounds like a good plan 👍 Lead is still used here on parts of roofing, the flashing, but once up there's minimal contact with it. Unless a thief - many churches have suffered losses of lead, valuable stuff.
@bsag A little kindness goes a long way, it's unfortunate that it gets forgotten. We've also got the Hugenot ancestors on my mother's side, aunt is very keen on tracing the genealogy but I glaze over a bit so can't name names!
@bsag Thank you for sharing that, it is a jungle out there. What does encourage me is that we are a resilient lot and will get by in the end, just as Mr Bsag has done. And continues to, armed with a better understanding :-)
