Highgate Cemetery, Otway Mausoleum 2012

Monument to Sir General Loftus Otway c1854

This mausoleum in Highgate West Cemetery had fallen into a general state of disrepair through time, neglect and vandalism.


Project aims

  • Excavation of the external flat roof; the porch roof; the east cornice, and where requiredd, the masonry vault walls, in order to assess the condition of the mausoleum before treatment

  • Secure the structural stability of the mausoleum where this is at risk, eg the east elevation of the porch roof and the east cornice

  • Restore the exterior and interior of the mausoleum, reinstating 'lost' original features, such as the skylights

  • Restore the external masonry, retaining as much original material as possible

  • Clean the interior catacomb and the exterior stonework, removing damaging biological growth on the exterior such as moss and algae, while retaining desirable biological growth such as lichen
