Brodick Castle Lead Repair
Funding from the US Foundation helped to make possible a long-term roof repair scheme at Brodick Castle. The roof of the castle requires regular maintenance to the leadwork on the cap-house roof and parapet gutter, and re-slating and re-pointing of any weathered mortar joints to the chimneys and walls at this level. However, this is a difficult and un-safe area to access. The maintenance team at the Castle developed temporary scaffolding around the tower that enabled them to make comprehensive repairs and install a discrete safety harness system to allow future maintenance to be carried out more easily.
