Shell Chapel - renewal and relocation

Relocation of the Shell Chapel, and renewal works including the following:

  • Cleaning.
  • Repair and painting of the concrete base.
  • Recoating of white wash and stain. This requires scaffolding and shrink wrap around the Shell Chapel to protect new product from the environment while it cures.
