Conservation compendium. Part 5: Inspection and repair of cantilever stone staircases

Cantilever stone staircases have been used in all sorts of buildings for more than 350 years. Unfortunately, when surveying buildings we can be so intent on getting from floor to floor that we forget to look at the stairs on the way. Like all structures, stairs need regular inspection and maintenance; without which, collapses can ultimately occur.
