Conserving and protecting the Cathedral’s historic features
Created by our Project Manager, Lindy Gilliland, this video shows the delicate operation of lifting one of the Cathedral’s incredibly heavy ledger stones. Work was carried out by our contractor, Historic Property Restoration Ltd.
This second video is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the intricate restoration work taking place on the Cathedral’s North Porch screen, carried out by T Manners & Sons Ltd, based in Bishop Auckland.
This work is part of our National Lottery Heritage Fund project, Common Ground in Sacred Space, which is due for completion in summer 2021.
Take a look around the rest of the Cathedral, and our other development works, in Lindy’s recent video here.
