The Conservation of Bellmanpark Limekilns

Talk by Jane Entwistle BSc (Hons) CEng FIStructE MICE

CCS’s Bellmanpark Limekilns Project Group (BLPG) has worked closely with Hanson Management and co-ordinated a successful bid to Historic England which was confirmed in September 2018. Following a competitive tender exercise overseen by BLBG and Hanson, in February 2019 Conservation Engineers, Thomasson, were appointed by Hanson Cement, and with the assistance of the Major Grant from Historic England (HE). This to undertake urgent investigations and Repair works to the limekilns which are now on HE’s Buildings at Risk Register. The Scope of the work envisaged as set out in HE’s Grant Award is:

Rebuilding of collapsed sections of the internal kiln walls,
Removal of corroding cast iron collars at the kiln bases,
Propping of deformed brickwork in vaulting,
Repair to loose brickwork in tunnels.

Jane Entwistle is project leader for this work.
