If you caught our stories about being soaked to the skin this week, here’s why! We’re starting work to repair and conserve three fab little structures on South Stack, #Anglesey with @ramboll_uk. . Twr Elin is a cliff-top folly built as a summer home for the Stanley family in around 1820, but is today the home of @rspbcymru on the island. . Ffynnon Y Wrach is a very unusual structure, built in the 1860s over the site of a centuries-old spring, named after both witches and fairies, as part of efforts to bring drinking water into Holyhead. . South Stack Lookout is of unknown date, and sits perched on the cliffs overlooking the Lighthouse that warns ships and sailors away from the treacherous stretch of water into Holyhead Port. It was used as a coastguard and later a wartime lookout point. . #NorthWales #gogleddcymru #heritage #Anglesey #southstack #lighthouse #coast #rspb #conservation #oldbuildings #history
We’ve had some fab feedback on the repair and restoration of the clock faces at #Bangor Cathedral as part of our current project to the West and Central Towers with @esgobaethbangor and @insallarch . #Masonry repair and repointing is underway and with the slate faces repaired, painting and gilding by #BrianTheBrush has transformed the North and South clocks. . The regilded hands were refitted on to both faces yesterday and look fantastic! . #NorthWales #gogleddcymru #conservation #history #heritage #bangorcathedral #skills
The gargantuan structural scaffolding is nearing completion at #Northwich Library, as we start the painstaking process of needling through the west elevation to relieve the failing structure. Little by little we’re coaxing this lovely old thing back from the brink. . . #conservation #oldbuildings #cheshire #history #heritage #structure #architecture #books #library #skills
Over the years our masonry and glass teams have carried out various works to Bangor Cathedral. Our latest phase includes much needed repointing works to parts of the facade. The building visitors see today is the result of extensive work by George Gilbert Scott in the 19th Century. While Scott’s design originally called for a high central tower and spire, this was never completed as cracks appeared which were thought to indicate issues with the foundations. Thus the tower was left as a low structure. Our teams have been repointing various parts of the Cathedral, while carrying out repairs to the clock faces, and a range metalwork of the cathedral. #buildingconservation #buildinghistory #welshheritage #visitwales #bangorcathedral #cathedral #masonryconservation #conservation #builtheritage #northwales
Hello #Northwich! This handsome 1909 #Library building, listed Grade II, was closed after serious structural issues were found to the timber frame. Today we have mobilised to site to stabilise the frame, the first essential step in rehabilitating the building. . #conservation #oldbuildings #Cheshire #picoftheday #buildingconservation #timber #history #heritage #skills
