MONUMENT CONSERVATION
Bunhill Fields Burial Ground

Bunhill Fields, first established in 1665, is the last resting place for an estimated 120,000 bodies. Located in the heart of London near Old Street and covering nearly four hectares, it is owned and maintained by the City of London. The site has a long history as a burial ground and is known for its Nonconformist connections.

 

The City of London Corporation asked LSC to carefully undertake monument restoration and conservation to over 60 monuments across the site. As Bunhill Fields is a designated grade II listed site located in a conservation area, our heritage skills were called upon to deliver this work. Due to the nature of the site, our in-house archaeologist worked closely with our stonemasons to investigate the work.

 

LSC used traditional methods of repair working with lime mortar and matching stone on a like-for-like basis. This ensures that our work blends sensitively with the original monuments and protects them against further decay and weathering.
