From Michael Fishlock ISBN 1-871569-49-4–The carvers –pages 89-93: The first cut, which marked the beginning of the recarving was made by the chisel of Richard Hartley. David (Esterly) worked at Hampton Court for 12 months, the first two of which were spent studying photographs and planning the work. The remaining 10 months were devoted to carving. Trevor Ellis continued to work for two full years after completing the main drop. Three other carvers made a significant contribution to the success of the restoration. Roger Board worked on the drops in the First/Second Presense Chambers, Neil Trinder tackled 4 other pieces form the same room and Laurence Beckford restored the extremely fragile Le Sage carvings. It was a unique achievement and all six carvers realized that this was an episode in their professional lives which would probably never be repeated.
