Client: PCC of Clyst St George Church, Clyst St George, Devon
Architect: Russ Palmer
Following the Quinquennial Inspection Abacus Stone Conservation has carried out several areas of lime mortar repointing, repairs to the local Heavitree stonewall and stone mortar repairs to the 15th century church.
Heavitree stone wall repairs
A section of the boundary retaining wall needed rebuilding. Local Heavitree stone was used for the copings stones and Devon limestone for the wall face. The wall was pointed in lime mortar.
Wall repointing and coping repairs
The Heavitree stone has suffered frost attack causing areas to delaminate. There are also areas that have been repaired in hard cement mortar accelerating the breakdown of stone behind. Repairs are to be carried out in the spring in warmer weather.
