Kirk of St Nicholas

Restoration/Conservation

The Kirk of St. Nicholas is one of the most important medieval church buildings in Scotland and listed category A.

An extensive study and archaeological investigation was carried out within the Kirk itself by Aberdeen Council prior to the first phase of external fabric repairs and restoration works which has now been completed.
These works involved replacing the inadequate roof slating with a new lead sheet finish, comprehensive repair and replacement of all stained and leaded glass panels and associated tracery stonework and repair to the granite stonework, pointing and cast iron work. Extensive dry rot repairs were also carried out.

A comprehensive conservation study was prepared by GRA, incorporating a fabric condition report, statements of significance on various elements of the building and access audits, all of which supported successful funding applications. The repair works were part funded by Historic Scotland and HLF
