First stone is dismantled

The first stone is lifted

Another important date was added to the history of London’s most famous gateway, when the first stone of Temple Bar was carefully dismantled on 13 October 2003.
Each stone is numbered and placed on pallet which is covered with protective softening. The old mortar which was used to fix the stones into position is removed by the stone masons. The pallets are then lowered by a fork lift truck and then shrink-wrapped before being selectively placed within the compound of the site.
