Wayford Manor House


A mainly Elizabethan country house, Grade I Listed Wayford Manor incorporates some medieval fragments. The house was re-built in the 16th century by Charles Daubeney and was redesigned by Harold Peto in 1902.

Brief Description of Works: 

Following widespread problems with Collyweston roofing works recently completed to part of Wayford Manor, Messenger was contacted to provide specialist advice. Upon investigation it was determined that unfortunately the new roofing works were failing extensively and the only way forward was to start again. Messenger was subsequently awarded the contract to strip back, re-felt, re-batten and re-lay the Collyweston stone slate roof. The roof is being re-laid using predominately slates from the original roof, with a small quantity of re-claimed material as required.
