The scores on the doors……….

The cell doors at the Spike tell a story all of their own: scored with century old graffiti and bearing the marks of time.  Sadly, there were very few peep-holes left in tact and the bolts and locks had long been stripped away.

Luckily for the Spike, Len Norman has been able to find some of the original bolts and made new peep hole covers so that visitors can now see what the original doors would have looked like.

Len came in today and after some discussion with Gordon McBrearty one of our leading guides, fixed the new bolts.  Thanks Len Рas usual you have come up trumps!
