Tynemouth Gun Batteries

Tynemouth Gun Batteries

St Astier are currently on site at Tynemouth Priory where we have been charged with preparing, protecting and decorating the historic metalwork of its coastal defenses, specifically the gun emplacement magazines and store buildings which had suffered at the hands of the prevailing weather conditions on the headland.

Following a previously successful trial, we are using the Remmers Rotec Whirljet to remove rust, accumulated debris, flaking paint and organic growth in a controlled way before decorating works can take place to protect the metalwork of the installation.
