Bishop Salmon's Porch, Norwich - Norwich

Early fourteenth century porch to former hall of old Bishops Palace Two storeys with two ground floor open bays. Window reveals and mullions, capitals, shafts and other areas of carved stonework badly decayed. The upper chamber vault and windows are suffering from water ingress, and the raised ground to north and south is allowing damp to penetrate the structure. Essential high-level maintenance work carried out late 2017. A programme of maintenance has been completed and discussions on implementation of scheme to address long term leakage through rubble roof and stone conservation required.
