Carving replacement grotesques for the Houses of Parliament 2019

Cadeby Limestone has again been chosen for a wonderfully prestigious project at the Houses of Parliament.

Alex Wenham, a very talented and renowned carver was asked by Stone installers PAYE Stonework & Restoration Ltd to carve replacement grotesques for the houses of Parliament.

Cadeby was chosen because of its association with Westminster and the excellent technical attributes of the stone.

Alex says: “Cadeby was specified for this purpose by Adam Watrobski, the Principal Architect at the Palace of Westminster. I was glad that he had specified this particular stone as I’ve always found the quality to be very good and reliable for large carving jobs. I have confidence in its performance and I’ve recommended using it several times to a variety of clients. The stone is fine enough to hold good detail, and the firmness gives me confidence that it will last.”

The result is pure quality.
