This is a 13th century grade ll* listed Church in a remote part of Gower. Our work was to rectify extensive damp problems on the exposed and rather dominant south gable wall. After an extensive amount of cement pointing was removed, alongside cementitous plasters on the same internal aspects, they were replaced with lime mortar and lime putty plasters.
Several sections required consolidation to the stonework as it had been wet for such a long time it was falling apart. The rear gable also received new bath stone coppings and lead work.
Internally, the walls were allowed to dry out as much as possible before any lime putty plaster was applied. During the latter stages, a bathstone mullion was repaired using lithomex stone repair, coloured to match the existing.
