Today sees the dismantling of some of the scaffolding around the North Side of the Chapel.
The scaffolding was erected 3 months ago so that the stonemasons could carry out the lasering and consolidation work to one of the bays on that side.
The laser work has been to remove the polutant crust (black) from the stone, and the images opposite highlight the before and after of this work. It is clear to see that the work has meant that there is now more colour and detail visible to the stone.
The work will continue around the whole of the Chapel in 3 month blocks of time. The next bay to be covered will be over the north door area.
As the stonemasons move around the chapel, they will carry out work to stabilise the pinnacles.
