    Looks like I've had a historic leak in the bathroom. So far this is the only rot I've found. Would it be reasonable to cut out say half the depth of the joist, piece in a new section and then sister either side to add the strength back. I've ordered some boron gel to cover everything in after.
    The joists are 7 X 2.5 inch, and only spanning 2.5m, if they are the originals then they're 166 years old.. There is no bounce at all to the bathroom floor.

    Yes, but only sister one side, or about 600mm or so of 12mm ply both sides.
