Repairs to boundary wall

Posted: 9th October 2010

Funding: £10,000
Scheme Type: Normal Grants
Project Type: Heritage Buildings & Places of Worship
Area: Stroud District Council

Dr Jenner's House, The Chantry, Church Lane, Berkeley, Gloucestershire, GL13 9BN

The collapsed wall in Dr Jenner's Garden, Berkeley, has been rebuilt after fundraising efforts raised the £15,000 needed.

The boundary wall collapsed after heavy frosts and the majority of funding was provided by The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust.

Karen Bruff, Operations Manager at Dr Jenner's House, said: "Without this grant we would not have been able to complete the work. A plaque will be installed to recognise the generous support of The Gloucestershire Environmental Trust."

The wall was restored by Aldridges who used lime-based mortar to secure specially processed bricks to give a rustic and aged appearance. They were also able to achieve a close match to the adjacent original sections of wall that remain.
