From Friends of Crystal Palace
“Reconstruction of the South Staircase is underway… The South staircase was buried for many years under soil and vegetation. The area has now been cleared, the few surviving steps and landing slabs removed, walls dismantled for strengthening works and the entire area dug out ready for reconstruction
Salvaged stone steps are being used to repair or replace damaged steps on the northern staircases and new slabs are on site ready to reinstate this southern staircase as It would have been in its heyday
The photos show the groundworks and strengthening that have taken place. Plus the remnants of where the original steps joined the wall heading up on the left. Much of the brickwork and flooring within the arched passageway leading from the courtyard to the stairs has already been cleared and repaired”
