Conservation projects completed at North Park Furnace

We are delighted to share photos of the two conservation projects Jane Jones Warner-Associates have recently completed at North Park Furnace in Fernhurst.

We were tasked with repairs to a failing dam and Scheduled Monument to protect some of the most complete archaeological remains of the historic Sussex iron industry. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, difficult site access and water management, we worked successfully with the client team and the contractor, CJ Thorne & Co,  to deliver a sympathetic repair.
