Last week I picked up some off-cuts of roach stone from the quarry on Portland. The roach has now started its transformative circular journey which will culminate in its return to the island in time for the Olympics: from Portland into the spiritual into the scientific into the artistic and back to Portland. It is now in the mason’s yard at Gloucester cathedral in preparation for being taken into the cathedral to be carved into the optimal shape required for the next step, the scientific. More on that when it happens. Thanks Pascal for your help with this.
