We had an exciting opportunity to work inside a unique space within St Paul’s Cathedral during the late spring and autumn. Working in liaison with Caroe Architecture Ltd. and the Cathedral’s Works Department, we undertook conservation cleaning, the stabilisation of flaking paint and the removal of an impervious gloss finish from the walls of the bell ringing chamber and to prepare a background for the new peal board to be written by the renowned London sign-writer John Farnham, which is to commemorate the 2012 London Olympics.
