  • Removal, Replacement and Salvage of existing Natural Slates
  • Removal and Replacement of Lead Dressings & Cast Iron Rainwater goods
  • Removal of 5 No Concrete chimneys to below Roof level.
  • Substantial enhancements to the Structural Integrity of the existing roof.


This was achieved through carefully cutting back, replacing and splicing Structural members with new timbers to match the existing.

Defective Renderings were removed and replaced with Renders and Systems approved by the Project Conservation Architect.
