Here we see a close up of a stone wall in Eskbank, Dalkeith that we restored back to life. This old stone wall was in really bad shape before we carried out the restoration.
The wall had to have around 100 stone pieces cut out and replaced. We sourced reclaimed stone that was pretty much identical to the original, so the replaced masonry is very inconspicuous. After replacing the stonework we then repointed the wall in a sympathetic lime mortar, giving it a new lease of life.
