Masons repairing Conduit House

In a previous report on Albert Park, I showed how scaffolding had been put around the Conduit House monument and suggested the roof needed repairing. Ben has sent in pictures showing some hoarding. The company are stone masons. This leads me to believe the stones are being repaired and restored.

They will use lime mortar rather than modern Portland cement mortar, as the stones can breathe and last longer with lime mortar.
