Hope Family Mausoleum Dorking

One of the largest restoration projects i have been involved with was the Rejuvenation of the Hope Family Mausoleum in Dorking. The mausoleum was buried in the 60’s and dug up in 2010. I was successful in the tender to re manufacture the front ironwork, gates and railing for the mausoleum. I was supplied with photographs of the mausoleum and had to work out material section, dimensions and construction techniques so that the newly made ironwork would be as accurate to the original ironwork as possible. All ironwork has been mortis and tenoned together for accurate reproduction of new works, the ironwork has also been fitted with the use of Lead, as opposed to resin, to keep true to the original ironwork.
