Grade I listed All Saints Church in Stand required extensive mason repairs to the tower. Heritage Conservation Restoration Ltd carried out all repairs, which included the dismantling and rebuilding of the tower pinnacles, the removal of corroded iron fixings with associated masonry repairs, and the renewal of the stone louver blades to the belfry windows.
The full tower was raked and repointed in new hydraulic lime mortar, as this material is the most sympathetic to the buildings and allows the masonry to breathe, increasing the lifespan of the stonework.
Several stone repairs were also required, particularly around the clock faces where severe damage had been caused by corroding iron fixings.
New structural steel work to the tower also formed part of the project, with two new stainless steel rings being fitted internally, all of which were carried out by Heritage Conservation Restoration Ltd.
Other works involved repairs to the rotten floors within the tower, and a complete restoration of the four clock faces and mechanism.
