Roman Bridges - Graffiti removal plan

Roman B10

Editor's note:-
Today we received an update from Sarah Corran, CWaC, with regards to the removal of the graffiti from the Roman Bridges which were recently vandalised.

"I am writing to let you know that we have engaged a stonemason specialising in conservation work to make an assessment of the graffiti damage to the 'Roman Bridges' at Hockenhull Platts later this week.
Because the bridges are Grade II listed, the stonemason will need to submit his methodology in writing to our Conservation team for approval before work can begin at the site. He has been asked to programme the removal work as a priority but unfortunately, due to his high workload, he may not be able to complete it until early October.
I apologise for the delay but this particular stonemason has a proven track record in graffiti removal on historic structures, notably on Chester's city wall, and we would rather wait for him to become available than to risk employing an untried stonemason at such an historically important site."
