Welcome

Minerva, established over twenty five years ago, is a small business engaged in the specialist repair and conservation of historic stone and plasterwork.

Expertise in Lime repair and Lime repointing is at our core.

We have maintained many old buildings in our home town of Frome, Somerset, where we have a workshop as well as the City of Bath.

We also cover the counties of Dorset and Wiltshire.

Over the years we have worked on many diverse projects to repair and conserve grand houses, parish churches, chapels, cathedrals, ancient bridges, archaeological monuments and historic gardens.

We always welcome enquiries for smaller projects from private individuals.

All projects are undertaken 'in house' by our small but highly skilled team.

We have an unrivalled expertise in the use of building limes for repairs and pointing and a rare understanding of the building techniques, materials and vernacular style of south west and southern Britain.

In April 2019 John Murrays - established in 1768 and publisher of Darwin, Jane Austen and Lord Byron will add one of our Directors, Andrew Ziminski to their list with his first book, provisionally titled 'THE STONEMASON.'

Above: St James' Priory, Bristol. Here we conserved the monuments and replastered the interior using traditional techniques.

Minerva Stone Conservation took its name from the famous Gorgon stone pediment, displayed in the Roman Baths in the City of Bath and dedicated to Minerva which we restored in 2008.
