The Workshop

This is where Jonathan and Jamie have their workbenches; where the jewellery-making is done during the day; where the jewellery reference books are stored; and where there's a rather old and lovely Colchester Bantam lathe. The floor is wide-boarded in elm. Jonathan and Jamie's bench is made from Rock Maple, that used to belong to Winston Churchill. The upstairs backroom has a large rotating silversmith's forge, with the sink, the tea and the coffee (rather importantly).

My god I almost forgot the toaster! The downstairs back workshop has an upwards view of the Castle, and nine bench spaces made from old telegraph poles; the draw-plates for making wire; the hammer vice; the drills; dust; and - most importantly - about 20 000 tracks of music.
