Project Details

Concerns had been raised regarding cracking observed to the soffit of the porch of the Gothic Range combined with an outward tilt of the structure.

In essence the porch is in three square bays supported on four pillars to the west side with corresponding shafts to the east set against the main facade, the soffit is fan-vaulted.

The canopy stone work originally supported a large oriel window, which was removed in the 1920's. The gothic style pointed arches are naturally steep and the vaulting originally supported the weight from the ornate stone oriel window. It is possible the removal of the oriel, coupled with disturbance during demolition, has upset the balance of loads leading to slippage along the joints.

These entry holes were concealed in-between mouldings and decorations.
