Project completed August 2011 – cost c. £5000
After the cold winter of 2009, we found the south aisle window mullions detached and bowing outwards from the structural frame. These windows are built from medieval and Tudor brick, reinforced with Tudor ironwork.The repair required removing the external brickwork and replacing with antique bricks fixed to the structure with stainless steel pins.The whole area needed to be rendered using traditional methods.
Pictures above of the original damaged window frame.
Work commences July 2011:
The completed work – August 2011:
Part of the brickwork has been left exposed so that we can all appreciate the beautiful old bricks.The complex restoration and conservation work has been undertaken by Bakers of Danbury, who specialise in this type of work.
