    Replacing single victorian tile

    Hello, before I attempt it and apart from loads of care and patience, are there any tips or techniques for removing and replacing a single tile (2 1/4 inch) from a victorian floor. Usual thing, there's not much grout to play with, they're tightly packed. Thanks TN
