Stonework Conservation, Holy Trinity Church

Tina Avery Architect

The original Georgian church is built of friable local stone. The deeply weathered ashlar front elevation had been patched with cement render and cement pointing applied to all elevations, now causing further stonework decay. HLF/HES and Viridor landfill provided grant funding for conservation and repair of external masonry- removal of cement, essential stone replacement and full re-pointing in lime mortar- repairs to slate and tile roof finishes, replacement of rainwater goods, renewal of all lead gutters, improved lead flashings, and roof insulation. Repairs to 1930s Chancel included Lithomex on spalled concrete column and rectifying poor repairs to eaves timbers.
