At EarthStone we aspire to the high principles of conservation.

  • The historic environment is a shared resource

  • Everyone should be able to participate in sustaining the historic environment

  • Understanding the significance of places is vital

  • Significant places should be managed to sustain their values

  • Decisions about change must be reasonable, transparent and consistent

  • Documenting and learning from decisions is essential

We also adhere to the 'Principles of Conservation' in our work

These principles have been set out in International Charters. They are:
• Minimum intervention

• Repair rather than replace

• Honesty of repairs & alterations

• Use appropriate materials & methods

• Respect earlier alterations • Conservation is not Restoration

• Reversibility of work
