Refurbishment Case Study 28
Lime Pointing and Repair Works to Hobkirk Church, Hawick
This Refurbishment Case Study describes lime pointing and other small scale repair works carried out on Hobkirk Church in the Scottish Borders. It describes the mixing and use of a lime mortar made from local sand and quicklime, and the lessons learnt during the works.
The re-pointing was done over two years, in two week-long sessions in the summers of 2013 and 2014. After a reasonable interval the condition of the work was reviewed and the opportunity taken to record and describe the process.
