Nelson’s Column was built to commemorate the death of Admiral Nelson at the battle of Trafalgar against the fleet assembled by Napoleon. Erected between 1840 and 1843 with Granite from Dartmoor, the column was refurbished in 2006, using Saint Astier® Natural Hydraulic Limes for repointing and stone restoration.
Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and fortress, more commonly known as the Tower of London, was built in 1078 by William the Conqueror. Throughout the centuries, it has been used as a fortress, a prison, a royal residence and an armory, and currently is the home of the crown jewels and a museum. Today, Saint Astier provides the Natural Hydraulic Lime mortars for maintenance and restoration.
