Rochester Cathedral is England’s second oldest, having been founded in AD604 by Bishop Justus. The nave and parts of the crypt are examples of glorious Norman architecture, and the Cathedral boasts one of the finest Romanesque façades in England.
Several phases of the Cathedral’s ongoing restoration works have been carried out by our own highly talented stone masons. Works have involved replacement of the turrets to the Presbytery, lime pointing to the North Nave wall and removal, overhaul and reinstatement of the Clerestory leaded light windows
Incidental works also included the replacement of the lightning conductor system to a number of the turrets and finials, replacement of the weathered raked copings to the East gable and refurbishment of the ferramenta to the Presbytery stained glass windows.
The opportunity to work closely on one of England’s most prized architectural landmarks with the conservation architects and the Cathedrals team has been an absolute joy and privilege.
