Lorimer’s Astragals

Worked on the roof of a Scottish mansion designed by Robert Lorimer. Repairing the damaged stonework on a baronial tower after the removal of an extended roof structure, and aided in the dismantling and reclamation of stone from the 1960s lift shaft below. The damage that was done to the building by the attachment of a modern structure included liberal coating of tar, cutting-off stonework unnecessarily, and ham-fisted cutting of stone where flashing was inserted. Thankfully this is all repairable.


A replacement corbel currently being replicated for this work. This component shows the semi-circular section of the astragals that Lorimer used throughout the building
