From the images shown in Tigger's link it looks like a final concrete pour is due to in effect create the floor level of the entire building.

What is impressive is the sheer size of the footprint, well illustrated in those images.

May this dry weather continue for a little longer!

Tigger, do you happen to know how long the concrete base has to be left to thoroughly dry before brickwork can start? Perhaps ask one of those helpful chaps on-site!

A lot of concrete has been poured...

Four test walls have been built and the chosen brick has been decided.

The Bridgnorth Journal today reports that
"A milestone has now been reached as foundations are nearing completion and construction above ground can now begin.
The SVR is now looking to bring together veteran railway workers to help lay the very first bricks of the new station refreshment room, a key element of the project, on 3 May.
A search has been launched to find those who worked on the former Severn Valley line, which was completed in 1862 and ran between Hartlebury and Shrewsbury for more than 100 years before it was closed in a national rail rationalisation programme.
'We would love to invite those who worked on the Severn Valley line before its closure in the mid-1960s to join us in our journey to build on its future for generations to come."


Added to SVRLive - thanks

Patrick

Mr Bond reports that the final concrete pour will take place early next week.

It does appear a little perplexing that given several weeks of dry weather the contractors didn't manage to complete the concrete work this week, as we enter a period of changeable weather next week with some rain and cold night-time temperatures.
