Bellcot

St Drostan's Church, Insch

Works:

The bellcot features decay associated with oxidised ferrous elements, woody vegetal growth, biological growth such as algae & lichen, Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) based mortar and specific stone decay issues. These factors, described fully below, have caused the loss of carved detail and compromised the structural integrity of the bellcot.

The following section will describe the decay phenomena evident in detail and record how and which areas of the bellcot construction are affected.
