Feversham Monument

Dominating Helmsley Market Place is the memorial to the 2nd Baron Feversham. It's Grade 2* listed with Historic England. Helmsley Town Council has owned it since the 1980s.

Looking after the Monument

About every 5 years, the Monument is professionally inspected for safety and conservation reasons. In 2021 it was surveyed by Ferrey & Mennim Architects of York. They then sought tenders from suitable specialists for the work required and Pinnacle Conservation Ltd were awarded the contract by the council.

The work is due to start on Monday 4th October and will last about 5 weeks, one week longer than planned to avoid market days.

The photographs taken of the Feversham Monument during the daytime were taken in the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown in 2020. The usually busy Helmsley Market Place is empty. All photographs by Steve Bell, Photographer, of Helmsley. To open them up in a large size go to Community on the left-hand menu then click on Gallery.
