Contractor: Emerton Roofing (Western) Ltd

Project: The Riverside Pavilion

This project comprised the restoration of the tapering large lead finial on the RIVERSIDE PAVILION, located in a private country garden. The finial needed to be dismantled and returned to the workshop so that the timber former could be replicated. With the new European oak structure fitted together in the workshop, the old leadwork was trial fitted before being dismantled and transported to the site for its final fitting.

The original iron centre rod was still in good condition despite being 150 years old. Divided into manageable components the oak structure was carefully hoisted into position and secured whilst maintaining temporary cover. The salvageable embellishments were sandblasted, and the missing embellishments were recast in the workshop. The octagonal timber moulding was re-lined by welding together segments of lead which were fitted in two halves.
