Moor Park, Preston

Heritage Conservation Restoration Ltd were employed to carry out the Conservation, Restoration and Associated repairs to existing stonework masonry piers and walls. The works also included the construction and two new stone piers carved to match existing piers that were once a part of Moor Park.

Work involved cutting back ivy and vegetation growth around the 2 entrances of the park. Light cleaning to stonework using the TORC system to allow re pointing and masonry indent repairs where stones had fractured due to iron fixings previously used to attach the metal railings/gates. The existing stone piers where then re pointed using lead caulking to match existing details when the piers were originally built.

The 2 new piers carved were made from Longridge stone and were in 3 sections with each piece weighing in excess of 1 tonne and stood over 3m high.  With the use of a telescopic handler and Hiab wagon, Heritage stonemasons successfully fitted the Piers ready to receive new cast iron gates to the entrance of the park.

The works was carried out in partnership with Lost Art Ltd who carried out the making and installation of new cast iron railings and gates to the Park.

This Project has been awarded a Green Flag Award which is great news, “Many thanks to you and your teams for all the hard work that has gone into refurbishing the park over the last few years to this high standard, let’s hope we manage to get a Phase 2 refurbishment scheme for the lake up and running before too Long”
