York, Rigg Monument- Church of St Lawrence

This monument commemorates the death of 6 children from a single family who were involved in a tragic boat accident on the River Ouse, York in the 19c. The memorial was faithfully repaired and conserved- a light sheltercoat applied to protect the stone from future wear and tear- and the lettered plaque- nearly illegible- was copied like for like. The project was lead by Nick Beilby from the York Civic Trust and has been shortlisted in the York Design Awards 2017.
