Whoops! I forgot this had its own thread and had to rescue it from the Religious Buildings thread.

When I passed the Synagogue at 6.00 p.m. this evening I was surprised to see work still going on with a big crane on site. As is my luck they stopped work as I approached and I coudn't see what they were doing:

Not so much progress this week as they lost Monday and Tuesday to Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) and they will lose at least another day next week because of Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement):

Another short week this week as there was no work on two Holy Days. I think they will miss out on Monday and Tuesday next week too as the Jews don't work on the first two days of Sukkot.

There is no prgress report this Sabbath as there has been no progress. The site has been closed for the whole week of Sukkot. There are two more feasts on Monday and Tuesday so it looks like there will be no more work done until Wednesday 3rd. October.

They were back at work on Wednesday but seemed to mainly preoccupied with loading building materials. I took these this afternoon but it was difficult to see what progress, if any, there was on the actual structure as the crane was blocking access. I will have to make usual Sabbath visit tomorrow:

I was passing the Synagogue thiis morniing so I thought I would save a second visit but the rain and sleet drove me away after a couple of shots. I still had to go back in the early afternoon to complete my mission:

The weekly update on the Synagogue progress was taken a bit earlier this week when it was still a bit misty. I did go back in the afternoon when it was brighter to get some shots from the north west from which angle I think it seems the most impressive at the moment:

A lot can change in a few days on a building site. The east and north elevations of the new Synagogue are looking good:

I took these shots early on a cold, drab Sabbath morning. While I was there I got chatting to a Jewish neighbour. We mainly talked about the Syngogue but the conversation came round to the possible pit shaft on the site. He told me that his house in Ravenscourt Place was built over a similar but smaller old pit shaft.
