We got mail from Robbit the Hobbit:

There has been a bit of activity at Wingate recently. The internal fence in the yard has been removed, and a large hole has been dug in the middle of the yard. Workman have been seen with welding equipment and grinders. There are also some piles of 4by2 timber stacked in a corner. The blue screen is still there, so i suspect that this set will be used again. I will keep you informed of developments 🙂

The Minas Tirith set is coming along nicely, with walls and parapets sprouting up all over the set.
