    Abstract

    The purpose of this dissertation is to identify the phases of development of the masonry at the Church of St Bartholomew the Great in London and to determine the implications for its future conservation. The research seeks to examine the historical development of the church and its stone masonry, and to establish suitable repair philosophies. It also highlights the problems with stone masonry conservation and seeks to establish whether the skills of and training available for stone masons bode well for the future conservation of the fabric.

    The primary research is based on interviews conducted by the author with experts in the fields of stone masonry and conservation, as well as on visual surveys of the remaining fabric. The aim is to establish principles for the repair of stone masonry at the church, and to determine the availability of suitable repair stone. It is also hoped that the identification of the various types of stone masonry at the church will help to determine suitable conservation policies.
