Good evening everyone,

First time posting here so please be kind :)

I am carrying out a renovation of my 1960’s staircase. I’d like to remove the part of the newel post that sticks out below the ceiling. Is this supporting the tenon on the stringer above or can I cut it off?

I’m no longer at the house but have attached a picture of one similar I found online

Any help would be amazing!

Thanks in advance

I’ve attached some images to help. The last image shows another staircase of the same construction elsewhere in the house that has been damaged, thought it might help.

You could cut off some of that newel hanging down below the ceiling but not right up to the ceiling, you need to leave enough 'meat' below the stringer where it runs into the newel.
