Spectrum Stone Restore Elements of Wilkins Screen At King's College

Spectrum Stone were selected to produce the masonry and fine carving detail for the restoration phase to the Wilkins Screen.

This involved replacing a number of the Boss Stones. There are four different designs; two of them are stiff leafed and the other two are the Tudor Rose and the Portcullis. All of these are carved from the Perpendicular Style. The stone used was a Lincolnshire Limestone called Ketton Stone.

We also renewed other detailed masonry stones including pierced tracery panels to the lower screen and the pinnacle base stones with an intricate Castellation detail.

Also three additional Boss Stones were restored on site by replacing weathered areas with new stone and the detail was carved insitu.
