Heads Up - Lead Thieves In Sw Sheffield


Recommended Posts

We got done yesterday, stripped a big bay top, neighbours didn't see anything but there is a camera - so fingers crossed

 

Not sure of it will help someone else avoid the same fate just before Christmas. If you have a camera, or have been meaning to get one then maybe this will nudge that forwards

 

- it was heavy gauge lead (forget the grade) the guys who fitted it years ago needed scaffold and 3 men to get it up there and reckoned it would be incredibly hard to steal due to the sheer weight of the main piece. Assume its already flogged on to some *****  .  .  .  spent weeks restoring the old bay, mostly myself as we dont have much money,  absolutely gutted

 

Not sure what to replace it with

Sorry to hear about your encounter with lowlifes , for replacement perhaps consider fibreglass resin . Seen a few done now and could be finished with a slate grey top coat in your case , maybe finish with a lead trim for authentic look . Hope this assists .
