Harry Potter and the Crazy Paving
So I should say first that Harry Potter isn’t actually part of this story. Sorry. He’s not actually handed in his wand and Auror hat to become a Cliveden Ranger, bringing Ron along with him to work at the Orangery Café.
Yes, that delicious green and pungent villain, ruining perfectly good homes and walls since the dawn of time. Many years ago, a faulty drainage system was implemented in the Terrace and rainwater has been dripping into the unsuspecting rooms below.
To the naked eye, it looks randomly placed. But like so many things, what looks easy masks an incredibly detailed process, complicated and time consuming.
Pretty mind blowing how much work goes into this, isn’t it? When one is working with historical buildings such as this one, every tiny detail has to be meticulously thought about and planned. There’s no room for error.
And here we all are: Cliveden employees and super-fans of Ian’s team and their work. We’re trying to pass as construction workers, which didn’t work for some reason. I think it’s the fact we stopped to take a photo. Or our impractical shoes.
