In this article, issues associated with the scaffolding of historic structures are briefly explored and illustrated through four case studies. These are projects that crossed the author's desk, as a consulting engineer specialising in the conservation of historic structures, within a few months of each other. They explore some of the constraints imposed by 'historic fabric' and other factors, the compromises made, and the solutions reached.
