Chester Cathedral

The cathedral’s original bell ringing chamber and belfry have been opened to the public.

Handrails and improved barrier protection were needed on the stone spiral stairs and along the internal walkways. New stairs and metal walkways were also needed to enable open access to the roof.

Methods and techniques, supervised by the cathedral archaeologist, included setting fixings into mortar joints to avoid damaging stonework.

Visual impact was minimised by use of Webnet infills which were supported by tensioned wires.
