Repairing the roof

7th December 2015

About this memory

A slater scales the roof of the north block of Riddle's Court, a historic, sixteenth century merchant's house off the Lawnmarket.
The slates he is removing are Scottish in origin; sadly, there are no working slate quarries left in Scotland. The slates will be put back in place once repairs to the roof are finalised.
