Hi

Stripping wall paper off this old house ceiling and some of the ceiling caved in. Lath are all in good condition as far as I can see (Image 1)

Can I attach a plaster board in that gap, fill it with bonding and finish of with multi finish? Just not sure if that will be ensure the rest if the ceiling will not collapse at some point.

Alternatively am wondering if I can use the Limelite Renovating plaster and finish on the exposed lath with backer board washers and dry wall screws on the remaining plastered ceiling.

Not sure what to do?

With regards to image 2 &3 I'm assuming I can use the limelite Reno and finishing too? Or shall I just use Easifil?

Plasterboard, and skim, forget about limelight ,its
Crap, working above your head you will be covered in it, it has no substance to it, use quick setting bonding if you decide not to use plasterboard.

And you don’t need lime lite renovation plaster of any sort unless your room is suffering with damp conditions by the looks of it the room needs stripping back to brick and doing from scratch

As above re board the ceiling and hack off the rest and get it floated or dabbed. Over skimming that is a waste of time and ££ to far shot

I was going to over board the whole ceiling. Just less messy. You reckon I should just remove it all?
You can overboard it still if you want but it looks like it’s lost it’s bond to the lath I reckon it would just shell of quite easy I would personally just take it off
