Mel MJ trimming-in carvings on The South Porch

Trimming in across the joints of carvings on The South Porch (main entrance) of Gloucester Cathedral. We replaced many of the badly decayed carvings which included the carving of over 1000 crockets! The carvings were done in our workshop and finished off at the cathedral where necessary. The stone used was 'Lepine' French limestone.
