Warminster is a small market town with a wealth of 18th and 19th-century buildings in the historic town centre. The parish church of St Denys dates to the 14th century, but even older is the independent Chapel of St Lawrence, a unique chapelry administered by 12 Feoffees. Interestingly, this chapel is not supported by any church, nor does it belong to any diocese. The trustees are responsible for all upkeep and recently launched an appeal to raise some £40,000 for repairs. In 1575, the chapel was purchased for £38 6s 8d (£38.33 today). How things change!<br /><br />With historic buildings in and around the town, some national monuments, some still in use, owned privately or by the local council, we often find ourselves called on in the Warminster area to ensure that when the grime from traffic, bird fouling, general day to day soiling or even graffiti is removed from a treasured building, there is no damage to the often delicate stonework beneath.<br /><br />From removal of old paint for a domestic redecoration project, or the intricate cleaning of stone work in a cathedral using the poultice method, you will find that wherever you are in Warminster or Wiltshire, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.
