Sands & Randall - Westminster Hall
Had the great opportunity to photograph the majestic Westminster Hall a few days before lockdown.
It was the third time I worked for Sands & Randall: traditional & bespoke woodcarving, gilding and restoration specialists.
They took part in a large-scale conservation and refurbishment work restoring the 13 century angels and working at the lantern on top of the Hall.
Westminster Hall, which dates back to 1099, is the oldest part of the parliamentary estate and forms part of the Westminster UNESCO world heritage site. The Hall has been in constant use since it was first constructed, and has been the site of crucial events in the UK’s history, such as the trial of Charles I, coronation banquets, the lying-in-state of monarchs and prime ministers, and addresses by world leaders.
