Christ Church merlon repairs underway

Following our parapet survey, a programme of emergency repairs has started to correct the defective stone merlons.

Situated around Tom Quod, these merlons are 900mm long and 455mm high built in two courses. In total, 212 merlons were inspected.

A combination of rebuilding and strengthening the merlons will take place to ensure the long term stability of this historic fabric. Merlons will be rebuilt with new stainless steel dowels resin fixed and a lime mortar bed. Merlons are to be strengthened with Helifix sock anchors 650mm long.
