Shire Hall, Monmouth

The Shire Hall is a beautiful classically style, grade 1 listed building, situated in the middle of Monmouth. It was built in 1724, and was formerly the centre for the Assize Courts and Quarter Sessions for Monmouthshire. In 1839/40, the court was the location of the trial of the Chartist leader John Frost and others for high treason for their part in the Newport Rising. The building was also used as a market place. The Shire Hall is owned by Monmouthshire County Council.

Jones and fraser were enlisted with the job of repairing the cobbles and the paving in front of the building around the monument.

Jones and Fraser conducted extensive masonry repairs to the facade of this iconic building. A custom repair mortar was created to match the existing stone. This was made through blending extracted bath stone dust and lithomex to create the perfect match. All of this was carried out from a light mobile access platform.

Other works included paving and cobble repairs, maintenance and repairs to interior fittings not to mention a bespoke, classically styled, oak cupboard to house an interactive screen and also to display artifacts.
