Anglican Chapel Arnos Vale, Bristol

Hayles and Howe successfully carried out extensive stabilisation and replacement of ceilings and ornament in the Anglican Chapel. Based in Bristol’s historic cemetery at Arnos Vale this beautiful building was in need of some love. Furthermore the building is a Grade II* listed Victorian Chapel which lies in the heart of this vibrant city. So this project needed a high standard of works from the word go.

Extensive Restoration Project

Restoration projects such as this require that only traditional methods are applied in the process of repair. Therefore the Hayles and Howe assurance of high quality was absolutely paramount for this projects success. Extensive restoration was incredibly challenging for the workforce. Scarping back the badly eroded original finish was essential. This gave a consistent level for the application of the sand and lime finish without crazing. The work included running in-situ, lime skimming the walls onto the original background material and scribing Ashlar lines while the lime plaster finish was still soft. To restore the chapel to its former glories the team had to first clean all the surfaces and ornament of the chapel which ensured the success of this extensive project.

A Beautiful Project

Hayles and Howe are proud to of worked on such a beautiful and historic project. The cemetery is of both local and International significance. With its beautiful green spaces, listed buildings, chapels and monuments this is a must see location for all architectural lovers and historians .
