Holborn Viaduct

When I began work at Fairhaven and Woods in 1999 the first job I undertook was for the restored N.W. stair of Holborn Viaduct, now known as Atlantic House. ( See Restoration Section ) Twelve years later, and my first job self-employed is carving work for the N.E. stair building which is finally being restored, returning the viaduct complex to its original form. On this occasion, I have been fortunate to carve one of the monumental keystone heads, and one of the Sea-god atlante figures, both some of the most striking features on the building. The original carvings and statuary in stone and iron were produced in 1863 – 9 by the architectural sculptors Farmer and Brindley, a London company that worked on many famous Victorian buildings.
