As earlier photos mentioned, it has been decided that the crown stays should be replaced. This view taken from above the firebox shows the 24 holes following removal of the old stays. Pieces still remain to be removed from the crown of the inner firebox. When this is complete the holes will be cleaned up and retapped to a slightly larger size ready for the new stays to be inserted.
