Cost saving Conservation

Rhinoceros crafstmen have completed a 10 week project to clean, repair and re-polish the granite plinths dating from 1935 outside Monument Tube Station. These plinths around the entrances to the pedestrian subways had suffered considerable deterioration and damage over the77 years since they were installed. A number of vehicles including two London buses have collided with and damaged the 1.5 metre long granite stones weighing several hundredweights. During WW11, in 1944, a bomb was dropped on the road above the subways causing considerable damage.  Using traditional stone mason skills and natrural materials , crushed granite and marble, Rhinoceros craftsmen have restored the original beauty and lustre of these stones. This work has saved the City of London tens of thousands of pounds by removing the need to replace the stones with new granite.
