Nice work. Has the lintel in picture #27193 been preserved?
Added by Ian Hourston on 21 October 2013
Yes, Ian.

Good! Thanks Leslie.

Does anyone know how old the lintel is? I've heard the house founds or part of the house goes back to Viking times.
Added by Roy Sinclair on 28 October 2013
I believe the almost indecipherable date on the lintel is 1681.

The lintel says 'By the love and grace of the king' 1630 approx.
