Portsmouth Cathedral

Chancel repair project

The work involved removal of extensive cement pointing and careful identification of decayed stonework to the 12th century Chapel of St Thomas, including the repointing and repair of the south aisle.

The project required agreement with Cathedral Fabric Commission for England, the undertaking of mortar analysis, mortar biscuit and pointing samples and the selection of stones for the repair work. The chancel project included repair to the stained glass lancet centre window.
