After a period of time producing audio-visual records of the people and granite at Godolphin House, David made a granite block from rough for the restoration of the East Shippons agricultural buildings at Godolphin House, and a small bird bath for the medieval garden. Godolphin volunteers and visitors were encouraged to engage with the masoning process, and an audio-visual record was made for display and the Godolphin archives. David is also producing a Cultural Geology (R. Ferraby, 2015) document on the columns of Godolphin.
