Sandal Castle: Consolidation and Conservation
6th March 2019
We are very happy to announce that we have been appointed by Wakefield Council to carry out important conservation work at Sandal Castle. We will be starting on site in April to deliver Phase 2 of the Council’s project, when Phase 1 of the work, to repair timber bridges and steps, has been completed.
Sandal is a ruined medieval motte and bailey castle, first built in the 12th century. It has a rich history, including royal connections and civil war sieges. It was even the setting for a scene in Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Part 3.
Our stonemasons are currently carrying out similar consolidation activities at nearby Pontefract Castle, and are looking forward to moving over to Sandal to continue their highly skilled, careful operations there.
