1990/3SBC Minutes / 1 March 1990Site for Sole Street (detail) / The type of roof covering for this building was discussed. AGREED that cleft oak shingles would be appropriate for the hall and tiles for the cross wing. It was understood that there were several suppliers now producing these, although the size of a 17th century oak shingle was not known, neither the method of fixing. It was suggested that they should be nailed on to close or half boarding. Tiles for the cross wing would be plain peg tiles which Richard Harris would research further.

This illustrated the high level of accuracy which he hoped to achieve in this reconstruction. Discussion on the 1950s window continued, and it was AGREED that an alternative style of window could be inserted here and the necessary explanation provided. From a practical point of view the office would require a window in this elevation. Mr Warren suggested incising "1990" into a brick in this window, but Richard Harris confirmed that neither he nor the Museum Director favoured this form of interpretation as a matter of policy \\
