The decision to specialise in the conservation field arose from a playful remark from an architect client who asked if we could access the top of a steeple to look at the condition of the weathervane. We may not have had the experience, but we certainly had the knowledge, and it was from this moment that we began to do condition surveys of steeples and weathervanes, both internally and externally, while conducting cover-meter surveys to ascertain the whereabouts of iron cramps. This has evolved into the sought-after skill of being able to remove and replace damaged or corroded weathervanes without the need for expensive scaffolding of the whole steeple. A unique project was installing a stainless steel weathervane and the attendant cockerel at St Saviours Church in Eastbourne.
