St Mary's Lighthouse Close Up - IWP DanskOnce used to help pioneer the coastal defences of Newcastle and now 150 years on still a mastepiece and popular visitors centre!

With our presence in the North East we were approached by the council and procured to restore this lighthouse using our unique skills and expertise. We helped restore and replace the leaded light sections on the old lantern head and other timber repairs where the years of sea air had rotted timber window frames.

(A funny story here was our Managing Director, Kieran Davies was specifically working on this one and was too into the work that he forgot about the ‘tide coming in’ and had to spend the evening on the island!)
