Stanmore Hall Main Entrance

The main entrance to the hall was built around 1850. After years of neglect and weathering, it was given a facelift with a combination of new stone to the left hand side and stone repair render, as well as some repointing and cleaning.

Stanmore Hall

Window replacement. The Stone window to the right of the Winged Creatures has replaced a walled-up shorter window. This job had interesting consequences, which I hope to detail in a Case Study. Made of Bath Stone, the Stone Lintel was a fine example of 'Heavy Lifting'.

Chelsea RC Church

4 of the 'scroll' Ionic Volutes on these windows were badly decayed. The simplest solution whilst the church was being cleaned was to epoxy resin and s/steel dowel 4 blocks of Bath Stone, and then work and carve a likeness (like for like).
