Works to the Market Cross

Traditional Stone Ltd has been appointed to carry out works to the Market Cross.  Work will begin 31 August/1 September 2106 when a full netted scaffold and a security hoarding all around the Cross will be erected.

The work will entail stone cleaning, with a specialist process called Doff cleaning being employed, pointing repairs between sections of stone to prevent water ingress, stone repairs, surface stabilisation works and the re-installation of the stone orb and weathervane to the top of the crown section.

The anticipated duration of works, which will be monitored by Historic England, is 10 weeks.
