Progress at St Thomas Stockton Heath

Its always nice to see the new hand carved stonework being set back in place. For months now we have been chiseling the worn out Hollington stone from the tower whilst our Stonemasons back at the yard skillfully hand carve the new masonry using techniques that go back hundreds of years. Then in a few short weeks the new stones are set in position and the Church begins to live again.

St Maries Cathedral Sheffield Milestone Achieved

The Stonemasons at Lloyd and Smith reached another important milestone this week. The Cross and gilded weather vane have been built back in place and once again they shine brightly over Sheffield. To mark the occasion reporters from various Sheffield newspapers climbed the 29 ladders to the top with us to see what all the fuss was about.
Now the scaffold is on its way down and the end of the project is in sight. It will probably be another 50 years before anyone else gets to the top of the spire.

“Lloyd and Smith’s pure craftmanship restored this precious and fragile monument.  It forms a focus for remembrance services, and will do for a long time into the future.”
