Grosmont Tollstone restoration

Alastair cleaned and soda treated Grosmont’s upper Tollstone. This beautiful bi-coloured red and green engraved standing stone marking at toll at this former market town is beginning to delaminate.  The weather is penetrating down fissures on its top surface – the stone is laid with its original bed strata vertical – and will need further treatment in the future to protect it from erosion but for now it stands refreshed and better protected.
