This road facing Grade II listed building has been carefully restored by members of the Messenger team over many years.
Brief description of works:
This latest phase involved the restoration of two reception rooms and a new stone chimney top. The works were generated on fact based evidence following careful archaeological investigation, particularly around the blocked in inglenook. New floors were laid using limecrete on approved insulating pumice to an agreed specification. Stone flags were then reinstated in the original positions using the records made on commencement of the works.
Messenger also formed a chimney from new ashlar stone including carved sections. A number of internal walls were plastered in a haired lime mortar and then painted in casein limewash to maintain historical accuracy and a breathable wall system.
