After a tumultuous winter, all restoration works on the tower are complete with the
foundations on the sea-facing base of the tower consolidated where existing and rebuilt
where missing. This operation consisted of reconstructing the rock face using boulders
lying around the beach nearby backed with concrete reinforced with a number of strategically
positioned carbon fibre rods.
The roof-level structures were completely rebuilt including the staircase turret,
sentry room and the parapet wall complete with gun embrasures. All pointing works
in the internal upper level and all the exterior facades have been carried out. Waterproofing
of the roof structures and pointing of the platform is also complete.
One final job was the excavation and clearing of the soil and other rubble on the
landward front of the tower in order to recover the original level. In the process
a buttress wall was exposed. This feature was duly restored and finished with a coping
stone on the top-most course.
