As part of our ongoing conservation of The Big Dig site, the paving stones of Cribbs Lane have been painstakingly repointed with a lime mortar mix. Over the weekend the lane had to be kept damp, under hessian, to give the mortar time to dry slowly and ‘cure’.

This work was expertly carried out by Artisan of Stone. Our thanks go to Ken Ellis and his wonderful team.
