LTM were contracted by the Congregational Board to conserve and repair the historic fabric. Works included: replacement arch stones, jamb stones, tracery and mullion indents, extensive cosmetic repairs to delaminating stone façade and rough racking of exposed wall heads. Masonry consolidation involved injecting pigmented lime grout mortar between flaking stonework and new mortar flaunching. The overall aim was to conserve the fabric largely as found, with the overarching principle of minimum intervention into the historic fabric.
