Wall, Stair, and Battlement Repairs in City Centre Park
Wharton Park, located in the centre of Durham, was revamped in a Lottery funded scheme. Our works included site wide wall repairs, installation of new and reclaimed staircases, and the Structural Repairs carried out to the Grade II Listed Battlement.
New Natural Stone Staircases were installed to replace the dilapidated existing ones, utilising existing stones where possible. Wall repairs were carried out including the installation of ground retaining anchors due to the gradient the park is built on. Structural repairs were carried out to the Grade II listed Battlement which was built as a folly to overlook what was then the town of Durham.
