Durham Cathedral World Heritage Site

Durham Cathedral carved stone replacements

HPR have been awarded a significant contract for extensive masonry repairs to the fabric of Durham Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The quinquennial inspection identified the requirement for intervention to many areas of the historic fabric of the Cathedral to prevent further erosion of the stonework, and HPR are delighted to be involved in the first phase of this work. The project will require 15 time served heritage skilled stonemasons from HPR. Work started in August 2014 and is due for completion in July 2015.
