Restoration of the Royal Pavilion, Brighton: the Minarets and Storm Damage

During the structural restoration of the Royal Pavilion at Brighton, repairs have been carried out to the stone-clad minarets. Dynamic testing and load testing of the minarets has been carried out, together with a detailed survey of construction, to form a historical record and to help in the assessment of the long-term behaviour of the minarets. In October 1987, winds of hurricane strength caused the temporary scaffold roof to move more than had been allowed for, so that it impacted against the building. The damage was widespread and included damage to several minarets. This paper describes the minarets and how they were damaged, assessed, and repaired. K.R. Midwinter and J. Holden
