Enclosing walls to Moravian Burial Ground, King's Road SW10 - Kensington and Chelsea

The historic brick walls enclosing the Moravian Burial Ground once enclosed a garden in Sir Thomas More's estate, and are mostly of Tudor origin, with later additions. Historic repairs have used damaging cementitious mortars for pointing. Other problems relate to structural instability and brick decay. A pilot repair project, grant-aided by Historic England, was carried out on three sections of the walls and finished in April 2017. This will be used to inform the strategy for the repair of the remaining walls. The owners are exploring possible sources of funding.
