Cloister Court

Following successful completion of the Chancellors and State Officers Court works at the Palace of Westminster, conservation works to the east wall of Cloister Court was carried out

Cloister Court contains one of the few surviving parts of the medieval palace dating back to the 14th century. It remains historically and architecturally one of the most important parts of this UNESCO World Heritage Site and Grade I Listed building.

The scope of work was to sensitively clean and carry out masonry repairs and replacement and window conservation works to the east elevation in this confined courtyard. As a result of previous repairs and alterations, the wall structure comprises four different stone types. Three types are being re-installed as complete block replacement or indent repairs.


In carrying out these works, the Palace gained valuable insights into successful cleaning and repair techniques it will adopt for the future. Additionally, the works provided crucial information about the extent of work needed to complete the full Cloister Courtyard conservation project at a later stage. Moreover, these works played a significant role in establishing greater cost certainty for a new business case. Furthermore, the impact assessments resulting from these works will provide the Client with a comprehensive understanding for the future.
