SWIFT action from cleaning teams prevented graffiti doing permanent damage to historic features in Jephson Gardens this week.
Graffiti was discovered by the park ranger on Monday morning (November 26) daubed across the clock tower, a metal plaque by the Obelisk and also the statue of Dr Henry Jephson by the park's fountain.
Much of it was removed later that day but extra care was required with such heritage structures as cleaning risks damaging the sandstone surfaces.
A special heritage cleaning solution was applied several times, and eventually by Wednesday the graffiti was fully removed.
A spokesperson for Jephson Gardens owners Warwick District Council said: “The most important thing was to handle with care as we did not want to damage the features, so we made sure to tread very carefully.
“Quick work from the team helped us clear the graffiti without permanent damage being caused.”
