Weighing up the job, Rosslyn Chapel
Stonemasons are working on Rosslyn Chapel as part of a conservation and restoration programme. The 'umbrella' canopy NT2763 : Rosslyn Chapel with protective roof that covered the whole chapel roof for 13 years was removed in 2010, but there is still much stonework to replace, as the local sandstone is fairly soft.
Rosslyn Chapel
The chapel was founded in 1446 by Sir William Sinclair (or St Clair), Earl of Orkney, landowners in the area since the 12th century. After a sometimes turbulent history its remarkable carved stonework was deteriorating in damp conditions, until a programme of conservation and repair was begun in 1995 under the auspices of the Rosslyn Chapel Trust. A protective ‘umbrella’ canopy NT2763 : Rosslyn Chapel with protective roof was erected in 1997 over the chapel to dry out the stonework, and was removed in 2010.
