Scaffolding is now in place at Durham City’s oldest standing building as works progress at the 11th Century Norman Chapel, inside Durham Castle.

This conservation project will see the preservation of the historic Chapel’s sandstone walls which have suffered water damage from the surrounding soil as it has become accidentially subterranean over time.  The works planned will not only ensure the erosion is stopped and original features preserved but will include the installation of new lighting which will improve the visitor experience and allow the detail of the Chapel’s iron threaded sandstone and the unique pillar carvings to be seen.
