Masonry in the Dean’s Garden

71000760_2414637031907036_5569765086110679040_nJohn Laycock and Andy Weaver have been keeping a watching brief while the stonemasons work on restoring walls in the Dean’s garden.  There have been some remarkable discoveries.

John writes: The Deans garden wall rebuild continues to come up with surprises.  A carved Mansfield sandstone was found located within the remains of the mud stone walling at the rear of the Georgian brick facing wall. This stone is a closed Trefoil design with chamfered sides, possibly for a gable apex or part of an external wall decoration.  More photos are available on our facebook page, link in the menu bar above.IMG_4146
