St Botolphs Church, Saxilby, is a Grade I listed church in the Lincon Diocese.

Our Quinquennial Inspection identified urgent conservation and repair works needed to the stonework.

The works included essential repairs to the South Chancel and South Nave, replacement of carved and ashlar stone and repointing to the Chancel and North Chapel.

During the inspection it was noted that a number of Merlons to the Nave parapet were loose and needed fixing. A specification and schedule was prepared to detail the stone repairs and approval was granted by the DAC for the additional works to the Merlons to be included with the repairs to the Nave.

Unfortunately, over time stone surfaces are worn away by the elements and sometimes the stone cannot be saved and needs replacing. In this case, we sourced matching stones and carved them to match the original. Before starting work, records of masonry to be repaired or replaced were undertaken, and a copy kept for a permanent record.
