New roof only the start for historic Maitland Court House

From the Maitland Mercury report:
Morpeth Court House and Museum volunteer Alan Todd has praised Maitland City Council for allocating money to repair the building’s roof. But he said there was still more work to be done.
The council developed a program of works for the 1862 building in 2008, and repairs began late last year.
Australian Heritage Restorations was the company chosen to complete the work, which focused on removing old slate from the main centre structure and replacing it with new hardwood timber batons and imported Welsh slate.
