Repair of St Joan of Arc Sculpture

St Dominics Priory in Gospel Oak is a place I have often returned either to carry out ultra careful jobs as shown here, or as part of a larger masonry team to repair the stone fabric of the Church and Priory.

Here St Joan of Arc required a new sword blade that had been snapped off at the hilt and carried off. The new blade is made from Stoke Ground Bath stone with a stainless steel reinforcement within the stone, running the length and embedded below her foot and in the sword hilt. The extraordinary sculpture is a memorial to a soldier killed at the Battle of Ypres.
