St Mary Redcliffe, Bristol (2014)

St Mary Redcliffe, Bristol was described by Elizabeth I as "The fairest, goodliest, and most famous parish church in England."  The Clipsham stone memorial to the Wars was dedicated in 1921 and benefitted from the Centenary English Heritage War Memorials grant funding scheme. The contract comprised of the cleaning of biological growth and carbon deposits from the memorial, steps and sculptural elements, followed by lime repairs and repointing.

We also undertook the conservation programme to St John's Chapel in which a contemporary sculpture in honour of Queen Elizabeth’s visit to the city is displayed.  The contract included the cleaning and repair of all the plaster, stonework, monuments and sculptures as well as installing new oak pews around the perimeter of the Chapel.
