Cliff-face repairs at Bamburgh Castle

Scaffolding at Bamburgh Castle

Stabilisation work is taking place on the cliff-face beneath the iconic Bamburgh Castle.

The aim is to prevent further rock falls which have recently occurred and are considered a health and safety risk.

It has also resulted in the castle walls foundations moving closer to the edge of the cliff-face.

Remedial works include light scaling to remove loose blocks and spraying with a colour pigmented fibre reinforced concrete to match the existing rock colour.

A similar scheme has been successfully implemented at Tynemouth Priory.

“The scheme will allow the area to continue to be enjoyed by visiting tourists and preserve the outstanding location for the future,” states a report to Northumberland County Council.

Scaffolding for the works has been provided by Peri.
