Conservation

There is a need to conserve and repair historic buildings using the principle of minimum intervention. I also repair buildings that have been built more recently in the 20th century.

The following pictures show a Gablet; architectural carving and 250 feet high on the church spire. The first picture shows the stonework in poor condition and in danger of falling to the ground. Normally the fabric of churches and historic buildings are repaired and conserved rather than restored with new stone. It is essential to Save and maintain as much of the original building as possible. This preserves its unique history for now and the future.

However if stonework is missing, badly eroded and in a dangerous condition and shown as the original carved Gablet in the photos below, it needs to be replaced with new stone. This is restoration of a listed and historic building rather than its conservation.
