Guildhall Bath

The north wing of the Guildhall by John Brydon was commissioned in 1897 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee and to house the library and art gallery.The arts and sciences are depicted in the frieze above.  Under my leadership the team cleaned the building and repaired the ornament using the lime technique developed by Prof. Baker at Wells Cathedral. A great friend and source of  archeological knowledge Marek Lewcun was working with us along with Geoffrey Preston who carried out the carving repairs right. We worked closely with the surveyors of Bath City Council and the conservation architects particularly David McLaughlin with whom we had a long and fruitful association in Bath. The chimney,left, was a separate contract and was the work of Ian McAvoy and myself.
