St Botolph Church, Saxilby, is a Grade I listed church in the Diocese of Lincoln.
Taken on as architect to this Grade I listed church in Saxilby, the Quinquennial Inspection identified urgent stonework repair, including essential stonework repairs to the South Chancel and South Nave. The works included replacement of carved and ashlar stone and repointing to the Chancel and North Chapel.
During the inspection it was also noted that a number of Merlons to the Nave parapet were loose and needed fixing. A specification and schedule was prepared to detail the stone repairs and approval was granted by the DAC for the works to the Merlons to be included with the current repairs to the Nave.
Unfortunately, over time stone surfaces are worn by wind and rain and sometimes the stone cannot be saved and needs replacing, when this is the case, we source matching stones and carve it to perfectly fit the original. Before starting work, records of masonry to be repaired or replaced are undertaken and a copy kept for a permanent record.
