Ongoing works at the palace .....

The day after the King's inspection, a large number of wagons arrived. Pre-carved stone blocks were unloaded and a team of masons spent a while installing a ballustrade round the terrace at the side of the palace.

 The terrace is now used by members of the court for a promenade ...

An officer from the engineer corps has arrived to help supervise the works on the gardens at the rear of the palace....
 A small surveying team checks the levels and possible positioning of garden features ....
 While a number of labourers are busy clearing and levelling the grounds ....
 [The ballustrade was made by using a suitable coloured image stuck onto a formers made of card and foamboard;  Survey team - converted Minden figures; Labourers - some new Minden figs a a couple of converted Front Rank and Redoubt figs]
