How we brought this cowl back to life
I am sitting in our new conservatory looking up at two beautiful kilns. The weather is autumnly awful: it’s pouring with rain and the wind is playing with our cowls.
I do this in confidence thanks to the professionalism of Darren and his team. We have lived in our oast house for over twenty years. The original cowls were a source of constant noise, fear of damage from falling weathervanes and marital argument. The moment we invited Dude and Arnette for an assessment we knew we were in the hands of craftsmen. Just after they were completely replaced in 2013, an exercise well worth watching, a forecast of 80 mile an hour gales was forecast… No problem. Need I say more? Yes, the quote was reasonable too.
