Scribblings from
the Chair
Ian Bowman

                   The honourable
                   editor of the News
                   has reminded me
                   that further
                   scribblings from
                   the chair are in
                   order.
                   Unfortunately, no
overseas adventures to report on,
nor a naan in sight. However, I am
pleased to report that your
Executive Board (EB) continues to
work tirelessly to further the aims of
ICOMOS here and internationally.

A major milestone was passed at
our last meeting where, to much
fanfare and drum rolling, the
Strategic Plan was passed. Over
the last four years or so it has been
knocked into pretty good shape
by the EB and will “provide a focus
and measure for activities of
ICOMOS NZ for the next five
years”. It identifies our guiding
principles, strategic priorities and
who will do what by when. The
plan will be winging its way shortly
to all members

   have been on the road for 8
   weeks now having travelled in
   and around London, the West
Midlands and the South-West of
England, and even North-West
Wales. We have seen churches,
chapels and cathedrals, palaces,
military batteries, barn houses,
medieval halls and thatch-roofed
cottages. The topics we’ve
covered include lime, plasters and
mortar; carpentry and
dendrochronology; lime; brick and
stone masonry; architectural
ironwork – did I mention lime?

It is difficult to describe everything
we cover – there is a lot! Some
days include 4 different sites across
a 12-hour day with note taking on
the go, seconds to complete a
sketch, and taking turns driving or
navigating (how did they manage
this before sat-nav?!). Other days
might be one site with several
smaller projects on the go. The
following are some examples of
our days.

April 5th 2018 – Whiteleaf Cottages,
Princes Risborough,
Buckinghamshire with Andrew
Townsend

These cottages date back to the
Tudor era and over time have
been added to and altered. They
were damaged by a fire in the
thatched roof; a common
problem with this building
typology. We were asked to
investigate the building defects of
one of the three cottages,
whether pre-existing or caused by
the fires and suggest how we
might repair it.

April 18th 2018 – Hampton Court
Palace, Richmond upon Thames,
London, with Emma Simpson
(Brickwork Conservation Ltd,
Contractor), William Page
(Surveyor to the Fabric, Hampton
Court Palace) and Andrew Harris
(Martin Ashley Architecture).

Hampton Court Palace was built
by Cardinal Wolsey starting from
1515, then confiscated by Henry
VIII whom extended and
developed the building and
grounds for himself.

There are 3 parts to our day:

F
     irstly we look at brick and
     mortar repairs to the barracks
     by Simpson Conservation,
where we see the failures of the
brickwork due to poorly fired bricks
and hasty original construction.
Emma highlights the importance of
matching in the array of colours
evident in the bricks when
replacing defective bricks, and the
careful testing and matching of an
appropriate mortar for new
bedding and pointing.
