Event description

Description

Join Classic Masonry, conservation architect David Beaumont and members of the church at the Grade II* listed church of St Andrew at Dalton le Dale, to learn about the recent HLF funded and Historic England technically assisted repairs to the stonework and its interior decoration.

In this session the team will describe the defects and the investigations that were carried out to understand the repair proposals. They will also talk about the practical difficulties of stone conservation to the stonework, mortar mix and particularly the Norman Doorway conservation works. Plus the findings of paint research and the practicalities of redecoration.

There will be a demonstration of stone carving and lime pointing outside and the opportunity to have a go yourself, so walking shoes and suitable clothing is recommended. The contractor will provide hi vis, goggles, hats and gloves.

The morning session will be geared towards construction professionals and the technical aspects of the conservation works.

There are toilet facilities at the church, plenty of parking and we will provide some light refreshments.
