Having worked together before, Woodlouse Conservation were requested by the Crown Estate to assist the architect with the conservation of Monksilver Church. The church tower required re-pointing, the clock-face itself required long-overdue restoration, and the bell ringing chamber also needed refurbishment works. The Woodlouse Team hooked out all old mortar on the church tower and then re-pointed using matched lime mortars, and the clock was sent to our fine art restorer to have specialist paintwork carried out and to be re-gilded. In the bell-ringing chamber the timber cladding was removed and the walls re-plastered in lime, whilst the suspended floor was lifted to reveal the original flagstones. A few broken ones were replaced with reclaimed flags and then all were re-grouted with a lime mortar. The room was finished by concealing the modern electric cables behind bespoke oak conduit.
Woodlouse Conservation were nominated for restoration works to the church
