MONUMENT CONSERVATION
WAR MEMORIALS
Waltham St Lawrence War Memorial 2008

Generally in sound structural condition, this memorial was nevertheless heavily stained by moss and algae, a condition easily addressed using the Doff system of cleaning.

The challenge was to repair the lead lettering on the marble panels that had suffered loss and damage over the years.
The aim was not simply to replace the lettering, but to conserve its remnants and reconstruct the missing sections of lead letterforms by making up templates from the intact ones, then working the lead into the existing cavities.
