philosophy is one of ‘minimum intervention’ and we always aim to save
as much original fabric as possible, but with the elements of the
building that bare the brunt of the weather such as cills, string
courses and mullions replacement and copings (below) may be the only
option if the integrity of the stone has been lost.
Our in house team of stone masons and conservators possess a range of skills for the repair of old buildings and are able to work independently and sensitively to judge whether an element's function has been lost and needs replacing.

The images below are from a Gothick gardners cottage on the Farleigh estate, the HQ of Bath Rugby. After the rebuilding of the facade, we turned the ball finials on a lathe whilst the merlons and embrasures were worked on site. We managed to find many missing elements in rubble piles and hedges etc.
