Conservation Repairs for Listed Shell Grotto...

We were asked to advise on the condition of this rare Listed grotto in the grounds of a country estate, and to develop a scheme for its repair and conservation.

The building had been suffering from leaks through the glazed cupola on the roof. This had resulted in decay of the supporting woodwork and so to progressive deterioration. Eventually, the damage had spread to the interior and to disintegration of the dome. This is encrusted with rare and protected shells, mirrors, and fossils. Many of these are rare and protected, so not available for replacement.

We have carried out a full survey and produced a detailed scope of work. Consultation is underway and we hope to be on site in the summer.
