Loose Church - restorative stonework

Location: Restorative stonework

Over the years Build South East have worked on many churches across the county. We have constructed bridle paths, replaced cast iron gutters and down pipes and also the application of lime mortars for stonework, brickwork and render.

This particular project was to rescue an eight-foot-high retaining wall that was at the point of collapse. After carefully taking it down and retaining all the stones, we rebuilt it. Laying random sized and shaped stones sounds relatively easy, but when you are taught straight lines at college, it’s a case of forget what you know and do what you think! Although a small project for us, we were so pleased with the end result and the comments from passers-by, that we just had to give it a slot on our website.
