REFURBISHMENT - Temple rendered fit for worship

  • Comment

The first phase of repairs to the badly weathered temple in the private grounds of Highclere Castle in Newbury, Berkshire, has been completed using dry lime mortar from a silo, supplied by Lime Technology. The ribs, cornice and bell-flare detail on the dome all required rendering to prevent water taps. The rendering mix comprised two coats of well-graded sharp sand and St. Astier NHL3.5. Delivered to site as a dry mix material within a silo, the material was available 'on tap'.
