Work begins to repair damaged Poultry Cross

WORK to repair the damaged Poultry Cross in Salisbury was set to begin at the end of October.

Salisbury City Council has been given permission to carry out repairs by Historic England, with work due to get underway from Monday, 24th October.
It comes after damage to the landmark in May 2022 when a car crashed into it.
A city council spokesperson said: “The talented stone masons from Salisbury Cathedral will dismantle and rebuild the south buttress, which contains the damaged area.
“During dismantling, individual stones will be recorded and those that are undamaged or can be restored will be numbered and used in the rebuild.
“The materials we use will be a traditional lime mortar as well as a heritage lime gravity poured grout.”
The city council team will oversee the repair work, the spokesperson added.
