Stone cleaning

Pinnacle repair

PHASE 1 - £26,000 raised and work complete


This phase involved essential masonry repairs including repairs to the base of the porch, the turret staircase and reinstating the fallen pinnacle, see photos below.


PHASE 2 - £87,000 needed


The porous stonework of the porch has suffered extensively from the environment and is badly weathered with the fine detail damaged and decaying.  The photos show the results of a trial to establish what could be achieved.  The Friends are raising £87,000 to have the three elevations of the porch cleaned and conservation work done to the stonework.
