British Stones and fabricators winning awards in the Biannual Stone Awards

It was great to see so many British Stones and fabricators winning awards in the Biannual Stone Awards this year hosted by the Stone Federation and in particular The Castle awarded a commended in the New Build Traditional category.

Using Windsor Castle as its inspiration it has a not so serious design and shows the Park Lane Bathstone off wonderfully. There is some stunning carving and stonework manufactured; masoned and built by one of our very talented customers A F Jones Ltd and architects CSK.

New Fantini arrives at Park Lane Mine

We are very happy to announce the arrival of our new Fantini GU50 Plus. This is a collaboration of design changes between Fantini and Park Lane. The blade is a 2200mm long compared with the normal 1800mm and there are several extensions on the main frame to allow both deeper cutting and to cut higher up thus maximising the block recovery in the headings. The longer blade also allows for larger blocks. The machine is being put to work in the north of the mine opening up new headings and more than doubling the current production of both Basebed and Topbed.

Chichester Stoneworks was commissioned to undertake extensive masonry repairs to the St. James church tower and portico.

Within the tower structure, iron cramps had corroded, causing the surrounding stonework to split and crack.

Masonry repairs included installation of new indents and whole stone replacements using Bath stone set in lime mortar; pinning and structural repairs and restoration of eroded stone features.

A significant element of this project was the replacement of stone lintels at bell level. Temporary support was installed within the bell chamber propping up the dome above. Steel joints were inserted into the joint above the lintels so that the existing lintels could be removed and replaced one at a time.

This fine church can continue to open its doors, something it has being doing since 1829.
