OK, I get the message!

But going back to the stability issue, if you're concerned that the EH engineer needs to reconsider maybe your best bet is to get a friendly structural engineer to contact him?

I wasn't being intentionally awkward Nigel but I'd like to keep some things back for obvious reasons. As it is I'm making it sound like a book sell but the fact is it's come at the time the quoit has come under threat and it was important to mention it as this situation goes on all over the shop!
Re the engineer, yes a good idea, but I don't have or know any friendly ones. It was pointed out to me that EH engineers are highly skilled, far more than your bog standard engineer because they are used to seeing really dodgy archaeoligical structures that seem to defy all logic and almost won't fall so they tend not to overeact.

So there! :-)
