The Gaol Maintenance Strategy outlines the heritage aspects of the site that require maintenance and was put together by the Government Architects Office. The report is an important document that assists the gaol team in what works to undertake and how, it outlines the importance of the stone currently covered in cement render (a large portion of the walls) and the need to understand its condition. Recently a section of cement render was identified as being severely deteriorated and it was decided that it was an opportunity to remove the render and explore and investigate the stone underneath. In March 2020 stonemasons were engaged to remove a portion of the cement render and examine the stone to determine the quality and stability. We are still waiting on the final recommendations regarding the stone and we will update as information comes to hand.
