Cranmer's Tower

The Tudor brickwork on Cranmer's Tower, together with stone quoins and window surrounds, were also replaced by The CEL Group. 

Along with the re-pointing of brick and stone joints, stainless steel anchors were needed to stabilise the structure. The CEL Group’s services were also commissioned to rebuild parts of the palace boundary wall.
