St Andrew’s Minster, Plymouth, Devon
Time Assured were very pleased to win the contract to restore the four 7′-0″ copper convex dials on St Andrew’s Minster in Plymouth. Steve and Mike spent a week carefully removing the dials from the stone surrounds and then lowering them them to ground level.
Once returned to our workshop, the tracings were taken of the layout of the chapters etc, so they could be faithfully replicated. The dials were chemically stripped back to the copper base, they were then painted before the templates of the chapters were applied and then sized and gilded.
They were then transported back to Plymouth Minster to be re-installed.
