Remedial works start on South Staircase window, thanks to Historic England
Constructed from concrete and steel, the iconic south staircase is one of the most architecturally significant parts of the Grade I Listed Pavilion. DLWP is the first major welded steel-frame building in Britain; its mode of construction, and the materials and techniques used were pioneering in 1935, when it was built.
Over the coming weeks, we are cleaning up the metal beading around the windows and replacing some of the most damaged panes of glass. This will ensure that the structure is secure whilst we seek further funding for its long-term conservation. Thank you to Barton Engineers and Atlantic Glass.
These vital repair works have been made possible through the government’s Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage.
Thank you to DCMS and Historic England for this significant support.
