Adam Wilcockson was the successful applicant out of a large field. He had trained as a brick layer but at the time was a shelf stacker at Tesco.
In the three years he has embraced his training, attended college, passed his exams to NVQ level3, visited Trondheim to work on the Cathedral there as is a valued member of the works department team.
Now that his initial training is complete the Friends at their AGM will decide to further finance him as an " Improver Mason" for the next two years, afer which he will be a fully qualified mason.
These pictures show his developments in masonry over the past three years. The final photograph shows him with the blocks he has prepared to be fixed in St Hugh's Turret on the West Front of the cathedral.
