Works to the remains of Beverley Gate to begin

Leading UK specialist in traditional building methods, Nigel Copsey, together with bricklaying students from Hull College will next week begin to apply a new secure layer to the remains of Beverley Gate.

From Monday 2 October, cleaning of the remains will commence, with the ‘sacrificial layer’ of hot lime mortar being applied after the cleaning and preparation of the remains is complete.

Students will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to take on this exciting skill, not usually offered as part of a standard course.

This work follows improvements and re-covering with granite tiles that has been done with great care by Eurovia to ensure remains are protected.

It is expected this specialist work will be complete in November.
