Conservation and Heritage

Delivery of sensitive project management in heritage and conservation is examined in an article in Issue 36 of Conservation + Heritage Journal this quarter.

Reflecting on the work at St Nicholas’ Chapel, Kings Lynn, the article provides an overview on page 34 of the challenges and rewards encountered in this kind of project. There is also consideration by David Chapell on the future of conservation and heritage projects.

St Nicholas’ Chapel is a stunning Grade 1 listed building in Kings Lynn. It is the largest and finest Medieval chapel in England. Working closely with the architects Richard Griffiths Architects, there was major conservation work and re-roofing which had to take into account the improvement of the venue for visitors and the local community.  In addition, interventions and enhancements were planned to provide this community and cultural site with a sustainable future. Richard Griffiths Architects also have an article in this journal.

Interestingly, we both chose to use a stunning panoramic image of the roof of St Nicholas’ Chapel.
