Elstow Gatehouse

The project involved the careful conservation of the former porchway to the mansion that stood as part of the Hillesdon Estate. Works included brick replacement, lime mortar works and the replacement of stonework. The clunch cornice was replaced to help protect the delicate carving below that has become extremely friable over due to recent neglect. The whole elevation was treated with a colour matched shelter coat.
