Sponsor a Brick Campaign raises over £6,000

Thank you to all who have sponsored bricks; with your support we have raised over £6,000, with over 200 bricks sponsored so far!

The brick repairs have now begun inside the Tudor Courtyard and the transformation of the brickwork is evident with the aged brown bricks replaced with authentic orange Tudor bricks. The brick specialists will soon have a break for winter but will come back to finish the clocktower in March 2019.

The campaign has caught the imagination of the local community as well as people from around the world. Last week, bricks were sponsored by Japanese students and a family who stopped by on their way home to Nashville. The children were especially excited to be able to personalise their bricks and drew masterpieces including Nancy the snail which will remain in the wall of the Palace for 500 years to come!

The bricks have been produced by our specialist brick maker, H.G. Matthews, using a traditional firing process to create the same colour and shape of the original Tudor bricks. The signed bricks are placed into the walls of the Palace, enabling people to play a part in its history and ensuring the Palace withstands a further 500 years. Repointing has been carried out with a ‘hot lime’ mortar mix which is a traditional method which would have been used when the Palace was built in the 1490s.

Thank you to all those who have sponsored a brick and if you have not yet down so, there is still time. There are two types of bricks available for sponsorship: the Traditional Tudor Brick (which goes into the wall) and a Special Limited Edition Tudor Brick (which is placed in the archway).
