Historic Hall Restoration 13 - Restoring the Weathervane

A recent project we have been working on is the restoration of Brackenhurst Main Hall in Southwell, Nottinghamshire

The beautiful weathervane that sits on top of the bell tower was very rusted and in need of restoration. By looking at old photos of Brackenhurst Main Hall it had been discovered that the weathervane was missing a piece; the orb had entirely disintegrated over time and no remnants remained. The metal was restored, a new sphere made and finally, it was re-gilded with gold leaf. It again takes pride of place at the top of the bell tower and shines in the sunlight.
