We are delighted to have started the restoration and conservation of the Historic Lewis War Memorial. The Memorial was dedicated to the men who lost their lives in World War I from the Lewis area. It was completed in 1924 and is positioned at the highest point of Stornoway and is visible from outer space! The project will involve a diverse range of skills as we will be removing and replacing render to reveal stonework and using lime mortar for pointing, replacing the timber windows and carrying out restoration work to the spiral staircase ironmongery. Further tasks include roof lead work and using our Doff Integra Machine to clean the stone. We will keep you posted on progress …
