Restoration Project - Canterbury Cathedral

A restoration project that began over 50 years ago will finally be completed next week, with the installation of four new carved stone angels into the historic frieze of Canterbury Cathedral's magnificent 15th-century Chapel of Our Lady Martyrdom.

The newly carved figures, created by artist Nina Bilbey, will join five surviving historic carvings, replacing the plain stone installed in the 1970s. The original carvings were damaged in the late 17th century when four of the original angels were destroyed by a wall-mounted monument.

Nina Bilbey expressed her excitement, saying, "Sharing the completion of a project of this significance is incredibly special. A special thank you to Charlotte Howarth and Ben at Artscan3d, whose incredible skill made this project unforgettable."
