||The trustees of a historic chest tomb were concerned about the state of the tomb and wished to carry out restoration work. The tomb has a fantastic array of lichens growing on it and The British Lichen Society carried out a survey of the churchyard and tomb, giving advice on the lichens and what works would be possible without damaging them. Through planning in advance it was possible to both preserve the lichens and also conserve the monument - a win:win situation.
