Lady Chapel Conservation Project

Priceless heritage at risk

Our 15th century Lady Chapel is regarded as one of the greatest treasures of Gloucester Cathedral but was identified as the most ‘at risk’ part of the building. 

having neared a state of irreparable deterioration, the Lady Chapel restoration project was a major undertaking for Gloucester Cathedral that took over three years.

The project formed substantial part of Project Pilgrim. Much of the work was carried out by our dedicated team of stonemasons and included:

  • Restoration of the damaged interior and exterior stonework 
  • Cleaning of the interior stonework 
  • Conservation of surviving Medieval polychrome
  • Extensive conservation of the stained glass 
  • Installation of protective glazing to the Great East Window
  • Other work will also include:
  • Installation of a new heating system 
  • Providing disabled access 
  • Relighting of the space 

The project was supported by:
