Stone unexpectedly falls from Tunsgate Arch in Guildford

Published by Josh Kerr at 3:51pm 20th February 2019.

Guildford Borough Council says a section of the High Street will remain fenced off until they are sure the facade of the Tunsgate Arch is safe.

It's after a piece of stone unexpectedly dropped from the arch onto the street below.

There were no reports of the any injuries following the incident.

The council, who is responsible for any repairs to Tunsgate Arch, said:

"A structural engineer is currently surveying the arch following the unexpected dislodgement of a stone from the facade.

"We will be carrying out the repairs as soon as possible.  As this is a listed building, we will need to obtain various consents, which may take some time.

“The area below the facade has been fenced off, as a precautionary measure, to protect the public.

"It will remain so until we are satisfied that any potential risk to public safety has been removed.”
