Had problems adding text after 2nd photo so here's the view as seen by public:



The Cider Press is a copy of one I saw in a museum in Guernsey and yes the archimedes screw to provide the pressure does go through a lump of solid rock.:bow:
Torque is applied via a long steel rod through a hole in the centre of the 'bobbin' at base of screw.

Now for the Pub Cellar, doesn't seem to be much work going on down there in this overhead shot:


Now these guys obviously need somewhere to wash so here's the oldtime sink unit:



Finally for now the view as seen by the public:


You'll. no doubt, note that the back wall has a sign "The Studio", more on that later.

Hi Gerry

Great stuff.
My grandmothers place backed on to the RH&DR at St. Mary's Bay.
Loved 15" ever since.

Just being silly now...
...maybe not though !

Like the double-deck space saver idea.
How about a colliery line...
...next level down.

A farm needs fuel.

Nice work Gerry.

Cheers

Si.

Thanks Guys, rather stalled on posting more details due to becoming involved in building a Wallace & Gromit layout entitled a "Riveting Day Out"
I'll come back to it mid September as I'm off to the Scottish Highlands for a week with Wallace who's looking for some rare Scottish Rivets.:!:Gromit's coming as well.
Happy modelling.:glad:

I love Aardman Animations stuff !!!

That critter to the left with the c-gar in his mouth is named Gromit.

Have a great time in the Highlands--wish I were there. Wouldn't be drinking the cider, I'm afraid,---there's better stuff to be had.

Sounds like Gerry might need a 'Herb-O-Rivet'TM for the Wallace & Grommet project !

Hot Hagis...yum !

Thanks Rowan, somewhat more than a Diorama though, here's the whole layout:



Here's what the layout looks like at dusk:



Finally here's what it looks like at night:
